Yes, I find the ‘one movement’ thing irritating - although I accept it may introduce people to some kinds of music that they would n’t otherwise explore. And yes - the evening concerts are often very good indeed - a recent week featured the Royal Scottish with some excellent performances. I think in fact the Tchaikovsky concerto mentioned above was one of those - really was most enjoyable.
I find their ‘Hall of Fame’ thing annoying in the extreme - and their claim that they play ‘the World’s Most Popular Music’ - no, it’s a very, very tiny percentage of it!
Does anyone else enjoy the Saturday evening Film music programme? Andrew Collins comes across well - one of the more listenable presenters imho.
(eta apologies to AP - the thread seems to have veered into a discussion on CFM!)
In reply to the original question - I quite like Scheherezade (that took some spelling before coffee) - but I don’t always want to hear just the same excerpt of it.
