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.
This evening, Jane serves up a real treat: for starters, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.1 – which was actually the second piano concerto he composed – followed by Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks and that's not all...
But Jane leaves the best until last, as our concert concludes with nearly 50 minutes of uninterrupted music: Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz.
