Today, a recent concert recorded in Ayr Town Hall of symphonies by Mendelssohn and Beethoven with a Concertino for trombone by Mendelssohn?s friend and collaborator, the virtuoso violinist Ferdinand David with Simon Johnson, BBCSSO?s principal trombone as soloist. Plus Stravinsky?s neoclassical ?ballet in three deals?
