St Petersburg

A personal view of classical music from a range of presenters. Today, Simon Russell Beale continues his series of programmes exploring the music connected to some of the cities he visited in BBC Four's 'Symphony' series. Today's focus is St Petersburg, and over the two hours Simon plays great music from composers who lived, wrote in and travelled to St Petersburg. Repertoire includes an overture by Glinka, piano music by Rachmaninov, and a recording of the 2nd Romeo & Juliet Suite by Prokofiev conducted by Mariss Jansons. This programme is part of Radio 3's series of symphony programmes broadcast this month.
