OK I know Radio 4's Page to Performance (Tuesday 1.30pm) isn't the same as Talking About Music. But today's edition was a surprisingly detailed talk, with musical illustrations, of Copland's Billy the Kid. At times it almost amounted to analysis, with experts showing some of the harmonic techniques Copland employed. There was little sense of 'dumbing down' even though the programme was intended for a lay audience, so well done Radio 4.
