Afternoon Concert: Barber, Finzi and Leroy Anderson
BBC Hoddinott Hall Cardiff Wales
Conductor Garry Walker
Soprano Elin Manahan Thomas
Harp Catrin Finch
An afternoon concert of seasonal favourites, novelties and some suprises featuring two of Wales's best-loved soloists: Catrin Finch and Elin Manahan Thomas. Samuel Barber's sumptuous arrangements of popular Christmas carols are heard alongside the serene contentment of Finzi's Dies Natalis: a reflection of an innocent newborn child's joy and wonder.
