Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Thomas Sondergard, performs Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, Schumann's Fourth Symphony and Korngold's Violin Concerto with Daniel Hope.

Wagner: Siegfried Idyll
Korngold: VIolin Concerto
Wagner: TraĆ¼me (no.5 from Wesendonck-Lieder) arr. for violin and orchestra
Schumann: Symphony no.4

New Principal Conductor Thomas Sondergard marks his first performance in Swansea with Schumann's imposing and powerful Fourth Symphony and the relaxed intimacy of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, whose serenity is far removed from the grandeur of his larger music dramas. There's also a violin concerto from a Viennese composer in Hollywood: the sumptuous concerto by Eric Korngold.
