Conductor Charles Hazlewood presents a new six-part series finding the links between seemingly unconnected pieces of music.

Each show presents an iconic pop track in a new light as Charles considers, amongst other things, how The Prodigy relate to J.S. Bach and what Mozart and Abba have in common.

He isolates each track's key ingredients and explores how they are used in other musical genres - from Beethoven to Bee Gees, and Youssou N'Dour to John Tavener - before returning to the original track with new insight into what makes it so great.

This week, the starting point is Lippy Kids by Elbow, as Charles explores how the track relates to Mendelssohn and whether key ingredients can be found in other genres.
