David Mellor - Sunday 27 April 2014

David Mellor delves into the music inspired by the works of William Shakespeare.

Shakespeare

To mark William Shakespeare's 450th anniversary celebrations, David Mellor dedicates this show to classical music inspired by the Bard and his many works. 

From Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet to Walton’s Henry V Suite, David explores just why Shakespeare’s' plays have enthused and delighted composers throughout history, including two composers who were clearly obsessed with the Bard - Verdi and Berlioz.
