Charlotte Rampling, Berlioz Anniversary, Leveret Perform Live
Charlotte Rampling discusses her new film Hannah, for which she won Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival playing a woman shunned by her family and society. She also talks about her five decade career, from Georgy Girl to her recent Oscar-nominated performance in 45 Years.
Hector Berlioz died 150 years ago next week. Best-known for his Symphony Fantastique - described by Leonard Bernstein as the first musical work of psychedelia, he wrote the first symphony to feature the viola as a solo instrument, and once ascribed a piece to another composer because he thought the critics would take against it if they knew it was his. Conductor Jeremy Summerly discusses the composers legacy.
