Penny Gore presents the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Andrew Davis performing Walton, Britten and Elgar on tour in Korea. Plus the BBC Singers in music by Milhaud.
Presented by Penny Gore.
The BBC Singers open the programme with Darius Milhaud's Cantique du Rhone, a choral piece in celebration of the French river, taken from a recent concert given in London (they'll be back with more Milhaud tomorrow). Then we're off to South Korea with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and their Conductor Laureate Andrew Davis: a concert of British music they gave in Seoul's Arts Centre last month, including William Walton's Viola Concerto, with the Korean American viola player Richard Yongjae O'Neill as soloist.
