Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra is a beguiling exploration of all of the orchestra's instruments through a set of variations on a catchy theme by Purcell and is one of Britten's most frequently performed pieces. Piano Concerto No.1, dedicated to the composer Lennox Berkeley, revels in the piano's versatility - the colours, percussive qualities and potential for dazzling passagework. Stylistically, its brooding, ironic character resonates with Britten's opera Peter Grimes. Scottish pianist Steven Osborne's insightful interpretation is said to be "packed to the roof with fun, wit, fireworks and dazzling pianism". Beethoven has the final word with the composer's intense and irresistible Fifth Symphony.
