Live from St.David's Hall, Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and their Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer are joined by soprano Lisa Milne and the BBC National Chorus of Wales in Simon Holt's new work which sets to music the story of obsession caused by living in a room with yellow wallpaper by the early feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gillman. After the Interval Lisa Milne returns to sing in Mahler's glorious Fourth Symphony - one of his most relaxed works which culminates in a musical representation of a child's view of heaven.
