Radio 3 Live In Concert

Friday 20 March



Vassily Sinaisky and the BBC Philharmonic perform music by Lyadov, Prokofiev and Vaughan Williams live from Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

Inspired by William Blake's stylised engravings, Vaughan Williams responds to the metaphysical nature of the illustrations and paints movingly clear pictures of Heaven and Hell in Job - Masque for Dancing, though folk song and dance are never far away. Leonard Elschenbroich, a graduate of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist scheme, joins the orchestra for Prokofiev's Sinfonia concertante and the programme opens with Lyadov's charming and colourful Eight Russian Folk Songs.
