Jane Jones presents her final Festival Friday concert - tonight with visits to the Edinburgh International Festival, Darley Park in Derby, a look ahead to Windsor and a festival in Italy.
Every Friday throughout the month of August, Jane Jones has been highlighting some of the best summer musical festivals across the UK.
Tonight's concert opens with Dvorak's Slavonic Dance in G minor, which will be performed at Derby Live in Darley Park on Sunday evening, a concert presented by Classic FM's very own Nicholas Owen.
The great trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth (pictured) will be performing at the Windsor Festival next month. Tonight we hear her playing Neruda's Trumpet Concerto in Eb major.
