Tom Service talks to Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries about the impact of this week's Comprehensive Spending Review on music making throughout the UK. Also in a round up of how the budgetary changes will affect music making he meets musicians across the country. A new film looking at the life of Edward Elgar is featured at the Sheffield Documentary Festival at the beginning of November. Its director, John Bridcut discusses how Elgar - The Man Behind the Mask reveals the hidden identity of a composer we think we know so well. And Tom meets one of the most performed composers alive - Eric Whitacre. Known for his top selling albums and a brand of choral music that both challenges choirs, and touches a massive audience, he talks ahead of his performances conducting choirs in London and Cardiff.
