Episode 3

Penny Gore presents a week of light music in its many guises, continuing the celebrations of the Light Fantastic Weekend.

Featuring performances from the BBC Orchestras and brass music from the Cory Band, you can hear a daily Rossini Overture plus a whole range of music, from the epic film scores of Korngold and Steiner, to the much-loved British works of Elgar, John Ireland and Eric Coates.

Today, Rossini's Overture to The Barber of Seville is followed by more from the Cory Band's recent performance of brass music at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London - including pieces by Elgar, Holst and tomorrow afternoon's Thursday Opera Matinee composer, Arthur Sullivan.
