4/4. Sean Rafferty presents the last programme from this year's festival. Shostakovich composed his moving song cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry in 1948, the same year as his condemnation at the hands of the Union of Composers and Andrei Zhdanov. The texts are from a collection of Russian translations of Jewish lyrics, mostly originally in Yiddish but some Hebrew or Russian; the melodies are in the style of the "klezmer" music Shostakovich loved. And the final work is a string quintet that Mozart composed and later performed with his friends. Shostakovich From Jewish Folk Poetry

Petroc Trelawny presents music and arts news.
Live from the Royal Albert Hall , London.
Dreams and personal memories are in the air in this evening of music composed and conducted by John Adams. An elegiac setting of the words of Walt Whitman , recalling his experience as a nurse in the American Civil War, is paired with a shimmering tribute to the composer's own father. And Adams's wildest dream is realised in his zany depiction of a huge tanker rising skywards from San Francisco Bay in Harmonielehre. Presented by Sarah Walker.
