Two concerts one world

Mozart, superb flute-playing and spirited singing.
CBSO at Symphony Hall, with Marie-Christine Zupancic the flute soloist. Hafner Symphony, Flute Concerto and Requiem.

Traditional folk instrumentals and singing from the Middle East, combining Arab and Israeli/Jewish strands in a campaign to overcome divisions in an area of such pain but such rich cultures too. Brave people, and it was a priviliege to be in the audience in Birmingham, with no-one under threat and people from the different cultures represented. Middle East Peace Orchestra.
