Petroc Trelawny is in Beijing to investigate the place of Western classical music in China today.

How far does it reach into people's lives and what are the economic indicators that suggest there's money to be made out of it?

Talking to musicians, concert promoters and journalists in the city, with reports from its concert halls, record stores and conservatoires, Petroc asks what is the future for classical music in China and what influence will it have on the rest of the world?
