The Programme this week will start with Itzak Perlman playing some Sarasate on his Strad. Then, as if that won’t be gorgeous enough, we will have Dido’s Lament (Henry Purcell) – and a movement from Beethoven’s 6th – the Pastoral. Next we calm down with a Cello Suite from Bach before something a bit startling by Messiaen followed by the ‘Motorbike’ trombone concerto by Sandstrom. The hour will end with Dvorák and Copland.
As usual – reception reports and requests for music to play in future programmes will be very welcome.
