Katie Derham this week focuses on music from the Baroque and pre-Baroque, including a magical celebration of the foundation of the Kingdom of Granada in 1013. Over three afternoons Jordi Savall and some leading musicians from the Arab world bring back to life the sounds of the Kingdom of Granada and Andalucia from its foundation a millenium ago to its incorporation into the Kingdom of Castilla nearly five centuries later.

As well as the early music, there's the chance to experience all four Brahms symphonies in performances from some of the continent's leading orchestras and conductors.
