Monday - Sarah Walker

Sarah Walker introduces music, including Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No 3. Delius: In a Summer Garden. Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A, K622. Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique.

Gustavo Dudamel is a musical meteor. Recently turned 30 - and that's not a misprint - "The Dude", as he is affectionately nicknamed, has already conducted most of the world's leading orchestras - among them the Vienna, Berlin and New York Philharmonics and the Boston and Chicago Symphonies, not to mention the Concertgebouw, Philharmonia, Dresden Staatskapelle and Leipzig Gewandhaus. He also finds time to be music director of not one but three orchestras: the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Gothenburg Symphony and, of course, the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra, with whom he visits the Proms on 5 August, for a performance of Mahler's epic "Resurrection" Symphony. Today on Classical Collection we'll be featuring this Venezuelan dynamo in a performance of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique.
