8.30 am Music critics Joanna Lee and Ken Smith report on: Taiwan Philharmonic's first "public concert" on May 24; the New York Philharmonic’s streaming of a concert of Brahms's German Requiem from 20/9/2001 for Memorial Day; and a review of Gounod's Faust and Berlioz's Damnation of Faust from THE MET Opera online, and two Cinderellas - Cenerentola (Met) and Cendrillon (ROH, Covent Garden)
8.30 Laurence Scofield talks to the British composer, pianist and conductor, Thomas Adès. They talk about the album Adès Conducts Adès with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Gerstein performing the world premiere of his Concerto for Piano and Orchestra live, and about his opera The Tempest - not a reworking of Shakespeare's play, more like a paraphrase with a highly imaginative score
