Mike Nock's inspiration for Vicissitudes was the 2011 earthquake in Christchurch, and we'll hear one of the suite's extended movements in this week's show. We'll also pay tribute to the late Horace Parlan, who passed away last week, and - just for fun - there's a bracket of film music to tie in with this week's Oscars ceremony.
