This week’s show starts with the Dance of the Knights from Romeo and Juliet, then we have a saxophone concerto, a piece by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, an intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana, and an extraordinary example of 1930’s film score.There is also some Debussy and Gounod.
In a programme first – every piece played this week has been request by a listener.
There is another first too – I have added a short field recording. It was made on the banks of a burn (what streams are called in Scotland) high up in the hills a couple of weeks ago.
As usual – reception reports and requests for music to play in future programmes will be very welcome.
