The Full Works Concert - Wednesday 30 July, 8pm

Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals are among the favourite works in this week's concert.

Jane Jones has two hours of bright, upbeat music for a summer’s evening tonight.

There's Mozart’s sublime Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola, and two orchestral masterpieces that appeal to all ages: the Carnival of the Animals by Saint-Saens and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition - both played in full.
