BBC PROMS 2011
Recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, London last August
Presented by Louise Fryer
Another chance to hear Sir Colin Davis conduct an orchestra of brilliant young musicians in a programme which ranges from Stravinsky's so-called 'war symphony' via the heady orientalism of Ravel to the dramatic Fate motif of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony. The leading American mezzo soprano, Susan Graham joins them for Ravel's vision of the Orient, which is by turns sensuous, voluptuous and erotic.
