Choral music by Emily Howard and Ralph Vaughan Williams recorded at St Giles Cripplegate plus the BBC Symphony Orchestra on tour in China, recorded at the Concert Hall of the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing earlier this year with soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers and conductor Sir Andrew Davis. Colloquially described as The Giant Egg, China's NCPA is an ellipsoid dome of titanium glass surrounded by an artificial lake, seating over 5000 people in three halls. This concert, recorded there with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Andrew Davis, included Beethoven's set of incidental pieces for a Goethe play, his Egmont Overture, Mahler's 'Songs of a Wayfaring Lad' and Shostakovich's 10th Symphony which was premiered in December 1953 following the death of Joseph Stalin in March of that year.
