Ulster Orchesta and Rafael Payare

The Ulster Orchestra and conductor Rafael Payare in works by Dukas, Debussy, Ravel and Shostakovich. They are joined by cellist Alisa Weilerstein for music by Dutilleux.

This morning's Breakfast finally reached the sea as it traces the path of the Severn river and celebrates our watery heritage

The antics of Goethe's hapless Sorcerer's Apprentice unwittingly cause rivers of water to flood his master's house, while Debussy paints very different but equally evocative images of the sea. Dutilleux's music is characterised by exquisite colours and deft allusion, especially in a performance by the celebrated American cellist Alisa Weilerstein
