Live from the Bridgewater Hall.
Presented by Stuart Flinders.

Sir Mark Elder conducts the Hallé in an all-Russian programme of music. The first half of the concert is devoted to two of Borodin's much-loved works, his overture to Prince Igor followed by the Second Symphony. Pianist Sofya Gulyak, the first ever female winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, joins them in a performance of Tchaikovsky's Concert Fantasy, and the programme concludes with the stirring 1812 overture.
