Part 1

From St David's Hall, Cardiff. BBCNOW/Thierry Fischer. Bach/Stokowski: Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Berg: Violin Concerto (soloist - Viviane Hagner). Brahms: Symphony No 1.

From St David's Hall, Cardiff. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Thierry Fischer conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in music by Bach and Brahms, as well as Berg's Violin Concerto, with Viviane Hagner, one of the most eagerly-watched violinists to emerge in recent years.

Featuring the grandiose Bach Toccata and Fugue, followed by Berg's final masterwork - the tragic Violin Concerto, which movingly ends with a meditation on one of Bach's best-known chorales - before Brahms' First Symphony, with its stormy opening and cathartic release.
