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, three very different pieces feature on our Full Works Concert. First up is Khachaturian’s Masquerade Suite, in all its full-on, orchestral glory.
It’ll be followed by the tender and very beautiful Piano Concerto by Nigel Hess, before we go on to hear a great new recording of the Mozart Requiem, featuring the soprano Elin Manahan Thomas – Classic FM’s Artist of the Week this week.
