  1. Concierto de Aranjuez - Joaquin Rodrigo
  2. Ritual Fire Dance, from El amor brujo - Manuel de Falla
  3. Symphony No 2 in C minor, 'Little Russian' Op 17 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky
  4. Travel Royal Suite - Doreen Carwithen
  5. Flight of the Bumble-Bee, from The Tale of Tsar Saltan - Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov

The most popular guitar concerto of all time played by international superstar Craig Ogden, a regular soloist on Classic FM, who recently performed the Malcolm Arnold Guitar Concerto with John Gibbons and the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The luxuriant atmosphere of Rodrigo's masterpiece reflects the sunny warmth of his Spanish homeland, the dance rhythms of Andalusia and the deady atmosphere of sun-drenched Iberia. The Ritual Fire Dance from Manuel de Falla's ballet El Amor Brujo is a brilliant orchestral dance that fizzes with fire and energy. The famous Flight of the Bumble Bee is an excerpt from Rimsky-Korsakov's fantastical opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan. Travel Royal Suite is the film music by Doreen Carwithen for a 1952 BOAC promotional film extolling to foreigners the delights that await tourists to Britaion. The concert ends with Tchaikovsky's thrilling, virtuosic Second Symphony nicknamed 'The Little Russian'
