Before the interval, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto features virtuoso Russian soloist Viktoria Mullova.
Lawrence Foster is in charge of the baton.

Based on the writings of Booker Prize winner JM Coetzee, this powerful dramatisation is directed by Alexander Harvey. It follows Elizabeth Costello, to whom the idea of human cruelty to animals is so abhorrent that she can no longer look another person in the eye. Her compassion leads her to believe that humans - and especially meat-eaters - are conspiring in a crime on an appalling scale. Starring Eileen Atkins, Paul Rhys and Lia Williams.
