Radio 3 Live In Concert

Sir James Galway and the Ulster Orchestra with a taste of Spain, live from the Belfast Waterfront, including music by Tchaikovsky, Rodrigo and Borne.

The fame of Joaquin Rodrigo, one of Spain's best-known composers, rests mainly on just two pieces: the famous Concierto de Aranjuez, and the Fantasia para un Gentilhombre, both for guitar and orchestra. Among the delicacies in this concert will be a version of the latter for the flute.

As always, when Sir James plays in his home town, he is likely to receive the warmest of welcomes - and to respond with the most thrilling of encores!
