Monday, October 22: Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra - Part 1
All this week, we’re giving you the chance to enjoy something very special, as Jane Jones presents five exclusive concert broadcasts from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Recorded live in Berlin, these concerts have never been broadcast before in the UK – and we’re set for a fantastic week of music-making.
Many of the concerts, including tonight’s, are conducted by the Berlin Phil’s Music Director, Simon Rattle. Listen from 8pm to hear Rattle conducting a complete performance of Elgar’s Enigma Variations, as well as Dvorak’s orchestral poem The Golden Spinning-Wheel. Plus, if you think the music of Schoenberg is a difficult listen, prepare to think again, as the Berlin Phil performs a wonderful version of one of the composer’s most shimmering and accessible orchestral pieces.
Don't miss the Full Works Concert every weekday from 8pm.
