A monthly report from the world of music.
Including:

The Sleeping Beauty
The enchanting story of a tiny opera house, forgotten and disused for over a century, then restored in every detail to its original state. The Drottningholm Court Theatre, near Stockholm, celebrates this year its 200th anniversary. Elisabeth Soderstrom, the Swedish soprano, describes it to John Amis and appears in an excerpt from Gluck's opera "Iphigenie en Aulide".

Harpsichord or Piano?
Rosalyn Tureck discusses with Kenneth van Barthold different interpretations of Bach's keyboard music and plays the Chromatic Fantasia in D minor.

Aaron Copland
The famous composer-conductor talks to Alan Jefferson about his ideas on modern American music.

Lionel Rogg
The new Flentrop organ has recently been installed in the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. The distinguished young Swiss organist, a Professor at Geneva Conservatoire, tries it out.

Introduced by Bernard Keeffe.
