Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
This evening, Jane serves up a real treat: for starters, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.1 – which was actually the second piano concerto he composed – followed by Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks and that's not all...
But Jane leaves the best until last, as our concert concludes with nearly 50 minutes of uninterrupted music: Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz.
