Today is the 415th anniversary of the birth of Louis XIII, so Jane Jones spends two hours in the music of France. We begin with the overture to Roland by Lully, a composer from the time of the French king he worked at the royal court. Next, a Mozart concerto accompanied by an orchestra named after Les Vingt-quatre Violons du Roi - ‘The King's 24 Violins’ - founded in 1626 under Louis XIII.

Wednesday 28 September, 8pm: Composers behaving badly

Tonight Jane Jones picks out some of the best and tells the stories, with accompanying music, of when they were less than saintly…
