I found myself yesterday trying to explain the evolution of equal temperament, off the top of my head, which I never do a particularly good job of...not least because it's not really anything I could call a speciality. Something I find particularly difficult is making the jump from abstract mathematical concepts to how the sounds of earlier tuning systems exploited the character of individual keys which resulted.
This looks like it'll be a really good series for anybody wanting to get to grips with some of the core works of classical music. If Simon Russell Beale's previous programmes on sacred music are anything to go by, it'll really capture the sense of composers pushing boundaries in their own place and time.
