Welcome to a new week, a new month, and St. David’s Day, here on Morning Brew. We’ll move things around just a little today, starting after 10 with our weekly chat with New York correspondent Tracy Quan. Then at 11.10 we’ll have the all important rugby news from HK Rugby’s CEO Robbie McRobbie (whose fault today’s switch is. He’s just so busy). At 11.40 we’ll meet photographer and author Patrick Dransfield. His brand new book “Track of Time: Moments of Transition” documents China on the cusp of change in 1986. Through essays and over sixty amazing black and white photos taken by Patrick in Beijing and Datong, this just-released time capsule shows what a difference thirty five years really can make.

Good morning and welcome to Wednesday. We have a musical start today. On this date in 1756 the world's most famous composer, to us anyway, was born. But, was he so famous during his own lifetime? Was he the "musical Christ"? as Tchaikovsky later said? Was he plain "nuts"? And, interestingly, as others have suggested over the years, was his sister actually the real musical one of the family? Composer and conductor Colin Touchin is back with us at 10.10 to address these points, and wish Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus... Mozart, a happy birthday. After 11.30 we welcome RTL France's man in Hong Kong, Philippe Dova, for more French sounds, and... le news. At 12.10 today, our weekly visit to Chris Watts at his Motion Dynamics studio in Central. Of course, join Chris on Facebook live with your questions, which he'll answer straight away with the odd demo thrown in for good measure.
