There was also a CD released, Ken Russel presents Classic Widows, which also helps raise the profile of the composers.

Nothing that I heard, I particularly liked.

He has the interest and more importantly, the influence, to bring this to the attention of the public, as this is something the public has most likely forgotten or never knew. Thus, this is most likely as important as any of his films.

Has there ever been a better love gift for a violinist than a violin concerto written specifically for that violinist. No never. Hardly ever.

Next time: more replies to another clip posted by Rosebud. Thank-you, Rosebud.

As so typically Russell, the title can be seen to have two meanings.
1st. As an adjective. Remarkably and instructively typical.
2nd. Again as an adjective, but this time to mean those women who were once married to now deceased classical musical composers.

The date of this? 1995 or thereabouts?

Which means, are any of the widows featured in this, still living?

To be continued . . .
