Soundstage: New York Dolls

Sunday 26 March 9.30pm Channel 020

The New York Dolls are one of the most influential bands still around. Creating punk rock before the genre had a name; the group officially broke up in 1977. Nevertheless, in 2004 Morrissey, who was a huge fan, asked the group to perform. They reunited to a rousing reception. The New York Dolls story lives on as the group released its third studio album, One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This in 2006. The Dolls' invigorating Soundstage performance is a celebration of punk's roots.

Leonard Slatkin, Juliette Hurel & Renaud Capucon

Wednesday 29 March 8.15pm Channel 020

In a programme with all French music, Juliette Hurel plays the world premiere of Bruno Mantovani's Concerto for Flute. Juliette Hurel has a Victoire de la musique classique to her credit, is a sought after soloist, chamber music player and teacher when she is not on duty as solo flutist of the Rotterdam Philharmonic. Bruno Mantovani, well known to us for his music on which Angelin Preljocaj based his ballet Siddharta recently was composer in residence with the Orchestre national of Lyon and is the director of the Paris conservatory.

The second soloist of this memorable concert is Renaud Capucon who entered the conservatory of his native Chambery at the age of 4 and continued his studies in Paris at the age of 14. He was leader of the Gustav Mahler Orchestra under Claudio Abbado and has just been appointed Artistic Director of the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad Festival. He premieres a transcription of Ravel's Sonata for violin, which has been orchestrated by Yan Maresz and plays the famous Ravel Tzigane, Rhapsody for violin and piano as a sort of encore.
