Wednesday - James Jolly

With James Jolly. To tie in with this week's concerts at the Barbican centre, James delves into the discography of Bernard Haitink, one of the most celebrated conductors of our time.

'As Haitink conducts, it's not a blinding flash but a clear blaze of glory in which you can see every ember glow' (Financial Times)

This week, Haitink's recording highlights include Vaughan Williams's Symphony No 5 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Ravel's Bolero with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the conclusion of Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier with the Royal Concertgebouw and Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.5 'Emperor', with the soloist Murray Perahia.
