What made the music of Igor Stravinsky so intriguing and thrilling – and remain so today? What inspired his works, and what role did both the past and present play in his compositional language? Just how original was he?

Forty years since Stravinsky's death, in a 36-minute programme conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen and Gramophone editor-in-chief James Jolly discuss music's great revolutionary - complete with excerpts from Salonen's many recordings of the composer (courtesy of Sony Classical).
