Music and Emotion

This series looks at the way in which music communicates emotion. In the hands of a crafty composer, a musical sequence can be calculated to portray adoration, anger, bravery, chaos, desire, despair, fear, fragility, joy, loneliness, and patriotism. 

Jeremy Summerly explores how music is at its manipulative best when it acts on our hearts and minds evoking humour, love and nostalgia, using examples from Bach to The Beatles.
