Episode 395 of 533 episodes

Early in his career Peter Maxwell Davies was, if not an angry young man, then at least a very spiky one. Brilliant, intelligent, and fiercely articulate, he went on to compose a number of ground-breaking avant-garde pieces including Eight Songs for a Mad King, and ten symphonies. He died on March 14, 2016.
