Give A Dog A Bad Name

David Owen Norris rescues four much-maligned musical reputations from the slings and arrows of outrageous predjudice and snobbery.


01Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture19970624

Is that `meretricious piece of bombast' not actually a rather interesting and well-constructed work?

02Nigel Kennedy19970625

Is he `the guy with the punk haircut who trivialises classical music', or a skilful exponent of Elgar?

03Antonio Salieri19970626

`The man who murdered Mozart!'...Or the great teacher who inspired both Beethoven and Schubert and wrote some music of his own.
