Rob Cowan explores music of lamentation and celebration. Plus Cherubini's Symphony No 1 and Mozart's Piano Sonata No 5 in G, K283, in a performance by Peter Katin.
In a new mini-series Rob Cowan looks at works by composers who composed just one symphony, starting with Cherubini, and he explores music of lamentation and celebration. Mozart's Piano Sonata No 5 in G Major, K283, is played by Peter Katin and there's this week's Sunday Supplement suggested by a listener. We also remember Israel Yinon, who died this week, with three pieces for string orchestra by Pavel Haas.
