Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a live concert by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales including Manuel de Falla writing for Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, with solo spots for Radio 3 New Generation Artists soprano Kitty Whately and the guitarist Sean Shibe. He plays Malcolm Arnold's guitar concerto which takes the instrument beyond its Latin roots, and adds a new twist to the usual soundworld of the guitar.
