In this evening's live concert from the Royal Albert Hall Simon Rattle conducts the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in a typically eclectic programme.
It features a new work,
Drowned Out, by Mark-Anthony Turnage. "Takingthis piece for its London premiere feels as though we're bringing a member of the family with us," says
Rattle. "He's produced some wonderful things for us and this marks the end of his four years as composer in residence."
The concert opens with Sibelius's tone poem Tapiola, in the second half Maria Ewing sings Messiaen' s Poemes pour Mi, and the orchestra ends with LaMer by Debussy.
"After the granite sounds of Turnage and Sibelius in the first half, the highly erotic voice of Messiaen and the immense sophistication of Debussy's seascape (completed in Eastbourne!) should ensure a pleasing contrast," says Rattle.
The programme is introduced by James Naughtie. In the interval, there's a look at the life of a CBSO musician.

"Good zoos, and there aren't many, can serve a useful conservation purpose in breeding endangered species, lalsothinkit's important that the rising urban population maintains some contact with the natural world.
Unless they do, they won't be bothered to look after it."
So says Sir David Attenborough , one of the participants in this debate - which includes the results of the Radio Times survey - on the role and future of our zoos. However, Will Travers , director of the Born Free
Foundation, disagrees. He says the zoo industry's meagre commitment to conservation is not enough to justify its existence. To conclude the series, Michael Buerk chairs the debate between zoo professionals and their critics on the subject. Producer Julian Mercer
