Operatic drama, limpid and dramatic romance, and sparkling contemporary music from the Ulster Orchestra in performances recorded earlier this year. Presented by Penny Gore.

Operatic drama, limpid and dramatic romance and sparkling contemporary music from the Ulster Orchestra in performances recorded earlier this year. Conductor Rafael Payare pairs Bruckner's best-known symphony with one of Mozart's darker concertos, played by Icelandic pianist Vikingur Olafsson. There's also a rare chance to hear the delectable trumpet concerto by French composer Henri Tomasi performed by Radio 3 New Generation Artist Simon Hofele.
