An expression of joy begins the programme in music by Handel, shaped by trumpeter Alison Balsom. Then composer Erik Satie shows how three piano pieces with a cold title can actually sound both warm and rich. There’ll be nifty playing from the Wind Soloists of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in a Dvorak Slavonic Dance, a luscious orchestral moment from Tchaikovsky’s ballet, The Nutcracker, and a Tudor gem from Anne Boleyn’s songbook.
Plus the romantic side of Vaughan Williams, and some irresistible rhythmic drive from singers Diana Krall and Tony Bennett as they come together in a Gershwin classic.
