The Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Joshua Bell play Vivaldi and Beethoven

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields plays Vivaldi and Beethoven, live from Colston Hall, conducted by Joshua Bell.

A generous sprinkling of iconic Vivaldian 'seasoning' and Beethoven's defiant symphonic optimism swaddle something whose ink is scarcely dry: a new work by bassist Edgar Meyer.
Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, live from Colston Hall, Bristol
