This week's highlights


Tim invites you to start the week with great breakfast music from birthday boy and conductor John Eliot Gardiner.


If you're trying something new today, there's inspiration from the unlikely source of Dvorak.


If you’re up before 7 this morning, you'll have a legend on hand to serenade you – Yehudi Menuhin, born on this day in 1916. 


"Eight wild boars, roasted whole at breakfast." So said William Shakespeare, in Anthony and Cleopatra. Tim can't promise you this, but he can promise a buffet of great get-up-and-go music, much of it in honour of the Bard.


We'll dance into the weekend with a conga, to launch American Dance Week, as well as awarding The Freedom of Classic FM.
