The BBC Philharmonic start this concert with a bang, courtesy of Oliver Knussen's colourful 'Flourish with Fireworks'! Star violinist Renaud Capuçon then takes us to Hollywood, with Korngold's Violin Concerto, recycled from the scores he had composed for a number of films, including The Prince and the Pauper. We return to Europe for the rest of the programme, and to Juanjo Mena's native Spain. New Generation Artist Clara Mouriz joins the orchestra for Turina's evocative song cycle and Falla's kaleidoscopic score for his tale of everyday Spanish folk, The Three-Cornered Hat.
