5: `The Later Karajan Years'.

This programme moves from the early 1970s to the death of Karajan in 1989.

The last of eight programmes in which David Mellor celebrates musical personalities from the past.

`A Very British Compromise'.

Marry a broad German bore to a slim French bore and you get a sensible British bore - at least in the world of horn-playing.

Michael Thompson traces the evolution of their British playing style.

He moves from Aubrey Brain and his son Dennis, who died at Mozart's age 40 years ago, via players like Australian-born Barry Tuckwell who have injected fresh blood, to today's pluralists.

09Janos Starker19971108

In 1931, Janos Starker entered the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest as a prodigiously gifted six-year-old cellist, and by the time he was nine, he already had several students.

The die was cast.

For most of his extraordinary, seven-decade-long career, Starker has not only been one of the century's great cellists but also one of its foremost teachers.

In the first of three programmes, LSO principal cellist Moray Welsh talks to Starker and his contemporaries about those formative years at the academy.

Starker also plays music which reflects that time, including works by his teacher's teacher, Popper, and academy professors Weiner, Kodaly and Bartok.

10Janos Starker19971115

A refusal to compromise his artistic principles, a forthright manner and a controversial performance style have been among the most striking features of the great Hungarian-born cellist Janos Starker's long career.

In the second of three programmes, the LSO's principal cellist Moray Welsh talks to Starker, his friends and colleagues about these and other aspects of an unconventional career which has included spells as an orchestral principal under Antal Dorati and Fritz Reiner and has seen him become one of the world's most highly regarded teachers.

11Paganini Variations19971122

In the course of his long career, Janos Starker has established himself as one of the world's greatest cellists and finest teachers.

In the last of three programmes, Moray Welsh finds out why Starker considers teaching the most important part of his life.

Former pupils recount their often frightening experiences, and Starker plays his arrangement of Bottermund's `Paganini Variations', Faure's `Apres un Reve' and `Papillon', and two peaks of the repertoire - Haydn's Concerto in D and his latest recording of Bach's Suite No 6 for solo cello.

12Donizetti On Disc19971129

The widespread revival of Donizetti's lesser-known opera is a relatively recent phenomenon, but his most popular works never dropped out of the repertoire, and singers have always been happy to programme attractive numbers which otherwise did not get a hearing.

On the 200th anniversary of Donizetti's birth, Gordon Stewart delves into the composer's operatic music as captured on disc during the first six decades of this century and comes up with a surprisingly wide range of recorded performances.

13Lamentations19971206

The 95-year-old Swiss tenor Hugues Cuenod talks to pianist Graham Johnson, recalling prewar Vienna and Paris, where he frequented aristocratic salons and worked with Nadia Boulanger.

After the war, the new early-music boom relied heavily on his light, unmannered, natural sound, and Cuenod made several pioneering LPs - his 1950 recording of Couperin's `Lamentations' prompted Stravinsky to ask him to sing in the premiere of `The Rake's Progress'.

Opera has been a constant thread, but at the heart of Cuenod's repertoire is French song - he knew and worked with Honegger, Auric, Roussel, Poulenc and others.
