Monday - Sarah Walker

Emmanuel Pahud is one of the world's leading flautists, and an exceptionally charismatic ambassador for his instrument. When he joined the Berlin Philharmonic at the age of 22, he was their youngest player; all the more remarkable since he went in as principal flute - top dog. Alongside his orchestral work he has developed a wide-ranging solo career, and on 28 July he performs two concertos at the Proms. So all this week on Classical Collection, Sarah Walker presents a survey of Emmanuel Pahud's recordings, today featuring Claude Debussy's sensuous, modernist 'Syrinx'. Also on the menu, in the run-up to the Horrible Histories Free Family Prom on 30 July, are works with humorous associations - including, each day, a different 'comedy overture' by a British composer: today we hear Arnold's Beckus the Dandipratt Comedy Overture.
