Jane Jones is here Monday to Wednesday from 8pm with two hours of full works. On Thursday and Friday, Catherine Bott is in the hot seat.
Tonight, Jane Jones celebrates the extraordinary talents of Vladimir Ashkenazy.
We’ll hear him at the keyboard with a complete performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.3 – and after that, he’ll be on the podium to conduct the Philharmonia Orchestra for the Symphony No.2 by Sibelius. And our Living Legends series concludes with the violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, who’ll perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.1 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
