Katie Derham begins a week exploring the wide-ranging repertoire of two of Switzerland's most distinguished ensembles: the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Lausanne Chamber Orchestra. The recordings, made live in concert at some of Switzerland's finest concert halls, today feature Mahler's Totenfeier which became the first movement of his Second Symphony, plus symphonies by Haydn, Sibelius and Arvo Pärt. Also, Czech horn virtuoso (and principal horn of the Berlin Philharmonic) Radek Baborak plays Mozart and international opera star Deborah Voigt sings Wagner.
