A Prom in which Colin Davis conducts the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements. Ravel: Sheherazade. Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 4.
With Penny Gore
Sir Colin Davis conducts an orchestra of brilliant young musicians in a programme which ranges from Stravinsky's so-called 'war symphony' via the heady orientalism of Ravel to the dramatic Fate motif of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony. The leading American mezzo-soprano Susan Graham joins them for Ravel's vision of the Orient, which is by turns sensuous, voluptuous and erotic. Presented by Louise Fryer
