The Full Works Concert with Jane Jones and Catherine Bott

Classic FM Live September 2016 Weekdays, 8-10pm

The Full Works Concert - presented by Jane Jones (Monday-Wednesday) and Catherine Bott (Thursday-Friday) – brings the world’s greatest music into your living room.

Tuesday 25 October, 8pm: Great Partnerships

Would 18th century operas have been as prominent if it wasn’t for Lorenzo Da Ponte? If Jean Sibelius hadn’t had the support of the Finnish government, would he have been able to produce as many compositions? And if George hadn’t had Ira, would the Gershwin song catalogue be as popular? Jane Jones hopes to answer these questions tonight, as she pays homage to some of the most famous, industrious and successful musical partnerships.

Friday 28 October, 8pm: Philharmonia Week Exclusive

The Philharmonia has the greatest claim of any ensemble to be the UK’s national orchestra. It is committed to presenting the same quality live music-making in venues throughout the country as it brings to London and the great concert halls of the world. Tonight is proof of this: a concert, recorded exclusively for Classic FM, given by the Philharmonia to celebrate its 20th year giving concerts at De Montfort Hall in Leicester. The Russian-themed programme includes Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, famous for its memorable melodies and ‘fate’ motif, which weaves throughout the symphony in different guises, from a funeral theme to a triumphant march.

Sibelius: Violin Concerto in D minor Opus 47
