In the fourth instalment of Erkenbrand's series on classical music, "A New Hope", the evil Galactic Empire has forced me to select four composers for Fausto, Wagenaar and Mr H to discuss. Rather than choose my favourites, I gave my picks based on themes that I thought were interesting for discussion. Subjects include the Barbary Slave Trade, Italian and English nationalism, Christian morality, the fetishism of Orientalism, civilization versus barbarity, and the synergy of contemporary film and music.

The introduction, as ever, is in Dutch and the rest in English.
