Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic together explore the journey of Mahler’s First Symphony, which takes us from the sounds of nature, using birdsong, to the sheer joy of living. For Robert Schumann, the centre of the world was his beloved Clara, and his Piano Concerto is half showpiece, half love-letter; Chetham’s alumnus and International Chair at the RNCM Stephen Hough knows exactly how to lay bare at its heart. The programme is completed by the Mendelssohn’s evocative overture The Hebrides.
