James Jolly

James Jolly presents Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez as well as music with a horticultural theme, by Chabrier, Janacek, Faure and Falla. Plus music by JC Bach and Khachaturian.

This week James Jolly presents the full version of yesterday's Building a Library choice of the Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. This leads on to an exploration of music with garden or plant themes, by Chabrier, Janacek, Fauré and Falla, among others. The week's young artist is violinist Nemanja Radulovic in music by J. C. Bach, and the neglected classic is Khachaturian's Violin Concerto in a performance by Leonid Kogan and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, directed by Pierre Monteux.
