Presented and directed by Robert Ziegler

Mark Kermode, star of BBC Radio 5live's Kermode and Mayo's Film Review and newly-announced film critic of the Observer, hosts an all-American evening of classic film scores. Featuring blockbusters from seven decades of movie music, from the Wild West to psychological thriller, comedy-drama, action fantasy, film noir and gritty crime drama. Martin Roscoe is the soloist in the Spellbound Concerto, written by Hungarian emigre composer Miklos Rozsa, his single collaboration with Alfred Hitchcock. It also features the eerie sound of the experimental electronic instrument, the theremin, which became a prominent feature of many 1950s sci-fis.

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Eivind Gullberg Jensen (conductor)

A programme of twentieth-century Russian music featuring one of Rachmaninov's most dearly-loved works, his Second Symphony, and Prokofiev's bittersweet Piano Concerto No.3.

Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto, written during the composer's exile on the French Channel coast at the beginning of the 1920s, is full of wit and cosmopolitan glamour. Rachmaninov poured his most personal feelings into his monumental Second Symphony; the result is an extraordinary, inexhaustible stream of melody.
