There are certain classical masterpieces that everyone should hear. John Wilson's phenomenally popular Essential Classics series selects the best and most famous of these for you to enjoy.
What better example than Mussorgsky's cherished Pictures at an Exhibition? This marvellously colourful work is laden with gorgeous imagery and has one of the most majestic final movements imaginable.
The beautifully crafted romantic lyricism of Korngold's Violin Concerto ? his most popular piece ? will be brought to life by Andrew Haveron, described as one of the most sought after violinists in the UK. Fittingly, this splendid summer night's entertainment opens with the Overture to Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
