• Symphony No 35 in D, 'Haffner' K 385 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Spider's Web, for harp and string orchestra - Paul Patterson
  • The Birds (Gli uccelli) - Ottorino Respighi
  • The Spider's Banquet, 'Festin de l'Araignée' Op 17 - Albert Roussel

Beauty and cruelty in nature. Tuneful birds and deadly spiders. Soloist Eleanor Turner weaves a charming web in Patterson's concerto for harp and strings. Respighi brings baroque imitations of bird song to today's chamber orchestra and Roussel's ballet music gives insects very human emotions with a surprising twist (spoiler alert). Mozart of course transcends all these earthly concerns.
