Discovering Musicwith Leonard Slatkin

on BBC Radio 3

Ten programmes in which
Leonard Slatkin and the BBC Philharmonic bring a fresh approach to listening to music. 4: Composer Aaron Copland wrote that "timbre in music is analogous to colour in painting". How do composers use tone colour? What mood do different instruments create? How would the opening of Beethoven's Fifth sound if he had written it for brass?
Leonard Slatkin and the BBCPO try out a few alternative orchestrations - and end with a performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol.
