Tonight Catherine Bott recalls her good friend and colleague, the British conductor Christopher Hogwood , who died on 24 September at the age of 73.
As is her tradition in this show, Catherine poses a question. This week: Why was Christopher Hogwood one of this country's most important conductors?

To illustrate her point, Catherine has extracts from Hogwood's seminal recording of Handel
, showcases his working partnership with James Bowman - the greatest counter-tenor of the second half of the 20th century - and we'll hear Catherine herself singing Dido's Lament
and sharing her personal recollections of that recording.
There will also be a rare chance to hear Hogwood himself playing the clavichord. "He was one of the best," Catherine says.
