M&G Classical Concert - T377216125

Three decades ago, a group of inquisitive London musicians took a long hard look at that curious institution we call the Orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook. Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.Performer Ian Bostridge (tenor).

In the Spirit of Tradition - T245226385

Some of the most famous music from the Baroque era rubs shoulders in this concert with a very modern classic, with the return of Sally Beamish's 'Spinal Chords'. Premiered in 2012 as part of the London 2012 celebrations, 'Spinal Chords' proved to be an instant success with audiences and critics alike. Set to a text by columnist Melanie Reid, it tells the story of her struggle to overcome disability. The powerful text is underpinned by Sally Beamish's slowly shifting, constantly evolving soundworld. Here it sits alongside music of an earlier era, including Bach's bright and fresh Violin Concerto, with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment leader Matthew Truscott as soloist.Director Matthew Truscott (violin).

Set to a text by columnist Melanie Reid, it tells the story of her struggle to overcome disability.

Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto sounds as fresh as if written in one burst of inspiration, but in fact cost the composer a great deal of time and effort revising it in the light of hearing early performances and advice from his violinist friends. The quicksilver finale is unadulterated enjoyment. Mozart's horn concerto is one of his most familiar and enjoyable works, with a famous hunting-style finale. Beethoven's eighth symphony, although his shortest, is a miracle of balance, compressing huge musical power into a tightly knit structure, and ending in a blaze of vitality.Performer Isabelle Faust (violin).

Queens, Heroines and Ladykillers: Curtain raisers and high drama - T0840326337

Marin Alsop conducts a dramatic evening of Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann. Concerts don't get much more dramatic than this. The evening begins with Mozart's Idomeneo, which builds from a brooding start to a heady climax before subsiding to where it began. It's the perfect curtain-raiser for a series of dramatic arias written for the female voice. Schumann's Second Symphony is perhaps his least-known, but it has been hailed as the composers most complete vision for the orchestra and contains some hugely powerful music - not least in the blazing final movement.Conductor Marin Alsop.

Mozart's Eroica - T1867682696

Tonight's concert sees a pair of Mozart's greatest piano concertos being performed by one of the world's greatest pianists, Andras Schiff. The Ninth Piano Concerto was dubbed 'Mozart's Eroica' by none other than Albert Einstein, and the work contains a sublime and tender middle movement contained by two feisty outer movements. Piano Concerto No.24 is perhaps better known and builds out of a spectacularly moody and muscular opening. The evening's musical sandwich is one of Haydn's typically fresh and zesty symphonies, though again dark menacing undertones can be heard underneath the bright melodies.Conductor Andras Schiff (piano).

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment Principal Artist Sir Simon Rattle joins the Orchestra to conduct Mozart's last three symphonies. Although written in relatively quick succession, these three works offer great contrasts. Symphony No.39 is full of wide, flowing melodies, whilst Symphony No.40 plumbs deep emotional depths and is perhaps one of the most tragic pieces that Mozart penned. Conversely, his last Symphony, No.41 'Jupiter', rounds the evening off in an explosion of sheer joy, energy and exuberance.Conductor Simon Rattle (Sir).

Haydn's vibrant oratorio The Creation, with Adam Fischer and an all-star cast of soloists. Haydn's oratorio The Creation is not only one of the composer's most popular pieces, but is also one of the most vividly descriptive pieces of classical music there is. Each aspect of the story is brilliantly brought to life by Haydn's expressive music - you can really hear the black emptiness before the First Day, the lion leaping and experience the heat of the sun as it rises - and the added contrast and texture of period instruments only adds to the effect.Conductor Adam Fischer.

Messiah - T01068431144

In 1784 Handel's visionary, ecstatic Messiah was revived in a huge performance at Westminster Abbey, an event that ensured its still iconic status. Today, we often take it for granted that musicians perform classical music from all ages - from Monteverdi right up to the present day, but that wasn't always the case. In the past, music was much more disposable (dare we say it, a little like some of today's pop music). Things were performed, became briefly popular and then disappeared. However, London became one of the first places to look back at the history of music, when Handel's glorious Messiah was revived in 1784, ensuring the work it's legendary, iconic status.Director Robert Howarth.

The concert starts with Mozart's Linz Symphony, which despite being written in only a matter of days, is a graceful, thoughtful work with an unusually lively, skipping last movement. Mozart's Posthorn Serenade is so-called as one movement features a valveless horn, the same type that was used in Mozart's day to signal the arrival of the postal coach.
