On Sunday 24th September Stephen Poliakoff was featured as a guest on BBC Radio 3's Private Passions. During the show Stephen discusses with Michael Berkeley how his father witnessed the Russian Revolution as a boy, and how that influence of Russian culture shaped his childhood. He talks too about the importance of trying to observe life with the fresh curiosity of a child, and how his films capture a child's-eye view.
Music choices include Mozart's Concerto for Flute and Harp; Bach's Cantata "O Jesu Christ, Mein Lebens Licht"; Haydn's Symphony No 49 and Michael Tippett's Concerto for Double String Orchestra. Listen out for Adrian Johnston's beautiful composition from Poliakoff's 2003 production The Lost Prince at 26 minutes.
