The Great American Symphony?

MIKE WHEELER listens to
music by Aaron Copland, as played by
John Wilson and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

 

Conductor John Wilson came on stage, gave the downbeat for the opening phrase of Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man — and broadcaster Stephen Johnson made his entrance. It was an entertainingly theatrical start to his latest 'Discovering Music' evening with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. (Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham, UK, 17 November 2017.)
