Customer Reviews

Why in the UK only

Why is this podcast available only available in the UK and what is the general principle preventing a lot of bbc podcasts being heard by people outside of the Uk.? I love composer of the week and live in the Bahamas. The composers are long dead etc... Love you BBC

An astouding and informative podcast

I have always rated Chopin to be one of my definitive composers, however how little I knew untill this simply sublime podcast educated with a truely incredible analysis of the miestro himself. The series of podcasts should be heard by all who deem classical music to be of such importance as I. The podcast regarding Bernstein was also briliant. Good work BBC this is where the licensing fee should be spent, keep up the good work!

the composers might be all dead...

... but the musicians aren't. The recordings are still copyright.
