Let the sun shine in: Valentina Peleggi begins with a tribute to a very uncommon woman indeed, before heading south to her native Italy. Korngold’s Violin Concerto is a deliriously romantic tribute to Alma Mahler, and it’s played by the brilliant Simone Lamsma. But Alma’s own songs have recently emerged from neglect, and these new orchestral adaptations by Roxanna Panufnik offer a striking re-imagination of an inimitable musical voice. Then, in a blaze of sonic glory, we’re off to Italy for Tchaikovsky’s ardent retelling of a tale from Dante, a moment of pure sweetness from Puccini, and Respighi’s Church Windows: four sacred images, painted in radiant sound.

Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room
Composer Roxanna Panufnik introduces her adaptation of Mahler.
