Monday - James Jolly

With James Jolly. Handel: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (Solomon). Boccherini: Cello Sonata No 6. Holst: Second Suite for Military Band. Mozart: Horn Concerto in E flat, K447.

Don't miss cello virtuoso Steven Isserlis, our Artist of the Week. Heard today playing Boccherini and then duetting with Joshua Bell in Saint-Saens 'La muse et le poete'. "Isserlis can turn a single note into a smile or a lament. His bow becomes an extension of his arm and, though it seems strange to say, he listens with full attention to every sound he makes. It's the only way to explain the unrivaled intensity of his playing." (Fiona Maddocks writing last year in the Guardian)
