Penny Gore presents Steven Burnard in Walton's Viola Concerto and Maxim Rysanov in Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme, in a series highlighting the viola.

Penny Gore presents a series of programmes in which the 'Cinderella of the orchestra', the viola, takes centre stage, with a variety of concertos, sonatas and other works for the instrument.
