01Performance on 320100122Presented by Petroc Trelawny|Takuo Yuasa conducts the Ulster Orchestra in The Walk to Paradise Garden by Delius and Tchaikovsky's First Symphony. They're joined by soprano Elizabeth Watts in Nuits d'été by Berlioz. |The world of Shakespeare hovers behind this concert live from the Ulster hall, Belfast. Walk to Paradise Garden is an orchestral interlude from the opera A Village Romeo und Juliet by Delius, the story of which is based on Shakespeare's famous story. Hector Berlioz had a passion for the works of Shakespeare, and the title Les nuits d'été is a nod in the direction of A Midsummer Night's Dream, though the work is setting of poems of romantic longing - La Comédie de la mort - by the high romantic poet Théophile Gautier. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1 is titled Winter Dreams, and although totally original, the elfin mood of the scherzo might have stepped out of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream.|Delius: The Walk to Paradise Garden |Berlioz: Nuits d'été |Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.1 |Elizabeth Watts soprano|Takuo Yuasa conductor|Ulster Orchestra.
