    I've been away from here for 1 day shy of a year! I didn't realise it was that long. I was lured back by my birthday email.

    This disc of Canteloube's gorgeous Auvergne settings is as good as any of the top recommendations in a crowded field. However, for me, it doesn't quite match the magic of the De Los Angeles versions I was listening to yesterday. That said, Jill Gomez has a lovely voice, captures the right balance between folk song simplicity and classical vocal production and Handley and the RLPO provide lush, sensual accompaniments.

    Live from the BBC Proms: Vladimir Jurowski conducts the LPO with cellist Steven Isserlis.

    Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
    Presented by Martin Handley.

    Stravinsky: Jeu de cartes
    c.7.55pm
    Walton: Cello Concerto

    c.8.25pm
    Live Interval: Art historian and New Generation Thinker Christina Faraday talks to Martin Handley about the Isenheim Altarpiece, a masterpiece of the Northern Renaissance by the painter Matthias Grünewald, which inspired Hindemith to write Mathis der Maler

    c.8.50pm
    JS Bach: 14 Canons (Goldberg Variations) arr F.Goldmann (UK premiere)
    c.9.05pm
    Hindemith: Symphony 'Mathis der Maler'

    Steven Isserlis, cello
    London Philharmonic Orchestra
    Vladimir Jurowski, conductor

    Vladimir Jurowski makes his final appearance as the London Philharmonic Orchestra's Principal Conductor after nearly 20 years in a concert of the 20th-century repertoire he has championed so passionately during his time in London. The rise of Nazism is the catalyst for both Stravinsky’s ballet Jeu de cartes (‘Card Game’), in which forces of good triumph over the wicked Joker, and Hindemith’s symphony Mathis der Maler (‘Mathis the Painter’), in which the demons and angels of the Isenheim Altarpiece are vividly dramatised. Walton’s rhapsodic Cello Concerto takes us forwards to the 1950s and the end of the composer’s career.

    Probably best avoided by anyone who doesn't have a sweet tooth, but those of us who enjoy whipped cream desserts can dive in with relish. Moffo sensuously croons her way through these gorgeous confections, with Stokowski ramping up the lush, romanticism. The effect is undeniably beautiful and I really enjoy the sticky sweetness of these delectable bonbons, but they won't be to everyone's taste.
