Live from London's Royal Albert Hall, Stephanie Hughes introduces the Los Angeles' Philharmonic, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, as they perform the London premiere of American composer John Adams's Slonimsky's Earbox.

The concert also features Gustav Mahler's song cycle Leidereines Fahrenden Gesellen, with soloist Lorraine Hunt (mezzo-soprano), and, after the interval, Jean Sibelius's Four Lemminkainen Legends.
