Live from Cheltenham Town Hall
Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas
Jun Markl returns to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for a programme of Strauss, Mozart and Beethoven. 'Death and Transfiguration' depicts a great artist's journey from earthly life to everlasting bliss in a powerful and radiant tone poem. Like Jun Markl, Alice Sara Ott is also of joint German and Japanese decent. She's the soloist in Mozart's sublime C-major concerto, No. 21, which has appeared on film alongside James Bond. Beethoven's life-enhancing 6th Symphony, the Pastoral, is just as radical as its more famous sibling No. 5, celebrating nature in its awesome power and beauty.
