Part two of two. John Sessions concludes his exploration of much-loved music that at the time of composition received terrible reviews, or had disastrous premières. He recounts some of the most colourful critiques of works such as Rachmaninov's First Symphony, Elgar's Cello Concerto, Bizet's Carmen and Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring.
