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.
Happy Birthday, Berlioz! The French composer Hector Berlioz was born on this day in 1803 – and tonight, Jane Jones uses this as an excuse to play a selection of fine Gallic favourites, including a couple of works by the birthday boy himself!
The highlights include Berlioz’ s own Symphonie Fantastique in full, alongside Satie ’s 3 Gymnopedies, Ravel’ s Mother Goose Suite and Jean-Baptise Arban’s The Carnival of Venice.
