Over to Amsterdam this week, by way of Paris, for a concert recorded live featuring the Amsterdam Concertgebouw conducted by Mariss Jansons and featuring Bass Ferruccio Furlanetto in a performance of the Songs and Dances Of Death by Moussorgsky. Also on the program is the Bartok Music for Strings Percussion And Celesta and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.
As always, the concert is complete with the Bartok and Moussorgsky on the top player and the Stravinsky on the bottom player.
Original announcements are in Dutch but the French announcer goes over the Dutch announcements so you have a jumble of foreign languages to sort through - that's why there's the program to look at.
