Description
Brian Hayes interviews Carl Davis, composer and conductor, coinciding with David Pountney’s staging of the Kurt Weill opera, Street Scene, at the Coliseum in London. The production received negative reviews from the press, particularly from Tom Sutcliffe in the Guardian, and Davis responds to the criticisms and talks about the background to the work with its roots in New York life. Includes excerpt from 1947 New York production of Street Scene; phone-in. Broadcast on LBC Crown FM. The recording is edited.
