The BBC Philharmonic takes a day-trip from Salford to the Peak District to celebrate Buxton Festival's 40th anniversary. The brooding moorland surrounding the town is portrayed in Patrick Hadley's "sketch for orchestra", Kinder Scout. Hadley knew the area well, taking holidays there. Jennifer Pike joins the orchestra to provide a lark for the landscape. A work penned by a British composer born in the same year the Festival was founded follows the interval, Ryan Wigglesworth's sparky "First Book of Inventions". Grieg's Op. 40 and Mozart's Symphony No. 40 complete the programme.
