Elgar, Lennox Berkeley, Arne Nordheim

Fiona Talkington plays out your broad-ranging requests from Elgar to Waldteufel, Berkeley to Nordheim. The guest requester is Duncan Thomson of the National Youth Orchestra.

Fiona Talkington plays out a selection of your broad-ranging requests with two helpings of Elgar, including As Torrents in Summer (from King Olaf). Tenor James Gilchrist with harpist Alison Nicholls conjure up the rich Elizabethan sound world of Lennox Berkeley's Five Herrick Poems, and there's bewitching beauty in Arne Nordheim's work for violin and electronics, Partita for Paul. Today's guest requester is the young violinist Duncan Thomson of the National Youth Orchestra.
