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.
Sound the Trumpet is the brilliant new collection of English music by star trumpeter Alison Balsom – and tonight, we’ll begin the Full Works Concert with music taken from it.

Plus – a fiery, five-star performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.3 (‘Polish’), conducted by Valery Gergiev, from the London Symphony Orchestra’s new collection of the composer’s early symphonies.
