Episode 2

Penny Gore with music from the 2014 Lucerne Festival. Dvorak: New World Symphony. Beethoven: Missa Solemnis in D, Op 123. Plus Panufnik: Concerto Festivo.

Penny Gore continues her survey of Lucerne Festival highlights with Dvorak's evergreen 'New World' Symphony played by Festival resident, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. And there's a performance of Beethoven's epic Missa Solemnis complete with a starry line up of soloists and one of Europe's most renowned choirs, led by pianist-turned-conductor András Schiff, whose hand-picked orchestra's name is a pun on his own. Plus more from centenary composer, Andrzej Panufnik.
