James Jolly focuses on operas set in Spain, including Wagner, Verdi, Mozart and Vives. Plus archive artist Mady Mesple and a Telemann cantata: Es sind schon die lezten Zeiten.

Looking forward to the new Royal Opera House production of Parsifal, James Jolly's selection focuses on operas set in Spain, with music from not only Wagner, but also Verdi, Mozart (by way of Chopin) and Vives.

James's archive artist is Mady Mesple, and the week's cantata is Telemann's "Es sind schon die lezten Zeiten" (The Last Days Are Already upon Us), which is a bracing and tempestuous cantata about the end of the world.
