Thomas Søndergård conducts the opening concert of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with a programme in which French refinement rubs shoulders with a flash of Spanish temperament from Ravel, Debussy's elemental seascape and the savagery and opulence of Messiaen. Steven Isserlis, one of the world's leading cellists, renowned for the depth and concentration of his performances, brings to life the passion of Saint-Saëns.
