The episode contained an extract of The Dance of the Knights from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, performed by the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Yuri Temirkanov, taken from an album on Signum Records, available to buy at signumrecords.com. We also heard a clip of Mussorgsky’s A Night on the Bare Mountain, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Vladimir Jurowski, available at lpo.org.uk. The next piece of music was from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, and that was another recording by the St Petersburg Philharmonic orchestra and Yuri Temirkanov, and the final extract was from Dawn from Benjamin Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, performed by the Britten-Pears Orchestra, conducted by Steuart Bedford – and those two are both available at signumrecords.com.
