Episode 2

Katie Derham introduces a magical celebration of the foundation of the Kingdom of Granada in 1013. Jordi Savall and some leading musicians from the Arab world bring back to life the sounds of the Kingdom of Granada and Andalucia from its foundation a millennium ago to its incorporation into the Kingdom of Castilla nearly five centuries later. Today there's a chance to hear the venerable middle-European tones of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in a recent performance of Brahms's lyrical Second Symphony.
