Let music ease away the strains and stresses as it celebrates some unexpected musical collaborations. American classical composers Lukas Foss, Philip Glass and Steve Reich pay homage to the world of pop. Two famous Viennese rivals – Mozart and Salieri – square up with death in mind, and Francesco Tristano shows that classical music and electronic wizardry can work very well together.
