To the coast of Spain for this BBC Philharmonic concert, as the musicians travel to Alicante for the third concert of their tour.
We first hear an Englishman’s portrait of the Italian rascal Scapino, in William Walton’s comedy overture. Internationally-renowned Julia Fischer performs one of the most popular of all works for violin, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. And a monumental work, the first of Mahler’s symphonies, is bound to mesmerise the audience from its very opening.
