Katie Derham concludes this week's focus on music from the Baroque and pre-Baroque with Jordi Savall and some leading musicians from the Arab world bringing 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. And the week's survey of all four Brahms symphonies finishes with a recent performance conducted by the revered figure of Herbert Blomstedt, now in his eighties.
