A Big Year for Berlioz: with the Berlioz celebrations drawing to a close Bernard Levin has some thoughts on the matter.

Herbert von Karajan Competition: 'What I'm looking for is explosive talent.' 348 thought they had it - 35 were given the chance to prove it at an international conducting competition in Berlin. Music Now invites the winner to make his first appearance in this country.

Another First: the Brazilian pianist Roberto Szidon, who makes his British debut this month.

A Small Celebration: 'I will let the air only vibrate with a small celebration of words' - John Smith. The Michael Garrick Sextet, poets Jeremy Robson and John Smith, and singer Norma Winstone set the air vibrating.
