The Full Works Concert - Monday 15 April 2013: A Tribute to Sir Colin Davis

Following the sad news about Sir Colin Davis having passed away yesterday evening, tonight Jane Jones pays tribute to this extraordinary British conductor.

We’ll hear him conducting the London Symphony Orchestra – with whom he worked for over 50 years – as well as recordings made with a host of other world-class orchestras.  Don’t miss this very special look back at the life of a truly great conductor.
