The Full Works Concert with Catherine Bott 8pm - 10pm
In his latest tribute to a great conductor, David Mellor looks at the life and music of Sir Malcolm Sargent.
David examines how Sir Malcolm became a renowned choirmaster as well as a fine symphonic conductor with a range of historic recordings.
These include his 1952 take on 'Rule Britannia' with the Philharmonia, recordings from his time leading the Vienna Philharmonic in Sibelius's Karelia suite, and the Royal Philharmonic for Beethoven's Symphony No.3 ‘Eroica' – a personal favourite of the conductor.
