Artist Lachlan Goudie presents a concert by BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Bramwell Tovey on the subject of green, featuring saxophonist Jess Gillam in a new John Harle piece.

Artist Lachlan Goudie presents a concert from the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, given by the BBC Concert Orchestra and conductor Bramwell Tovey on the subject of 'green', with musical images of nature, Michael Torke's synaesthetic representation, and Othello's 'green with envy' jealousy from Rossini's overture. The concert also features saxophonist Jess Gillam in a brand new piece by John Harle called Briggflatts, inspired by the epic autobiographical poem by Basil Bunting, named after the Brigflatts Quaker meeting house near Sedbergh in Cumbria, which Bunting attended regularly.
