On 6 April half a century will have passed since the death of the composer Igor Stravinsky and as part of a strand of programming to mark the anniversary BBC Radio 3 in an episode of the magazine show J to Z finds pianist Julian Joseph examining the relationship between Stravinsky and jazz.

The show is to be broadcast a few days before the anniversary at 5pm on Saturday.
