Sarah Walker with Satie, Berlioz and Holst

Sarah Walker with a broad range of music, including her Sunday Escape.

Sarah Walker’s Sunday morning selection includes the William Tell overture by Rossini and the Hungarian March from Berlioz’ Damnation of Faust. There’s also music from Satie and Mendelssohn, as well as earlier music by Alphonso 10th of Castile. Plus here’s a look forward to the coming week’s events at the EFG London Jazz Festival. This week’s Sunday Escape is a look back to September’s celebrations of the centenary of Holst’s The Planets, with Neptune in the recording by Sir Colin Davis and the LSO.
