Kenneth Woods, the conductor of the English Symphony Orchestra, joined me to play and discuss some marvelous music he has recently recorded. Ken plays music by the British composers Matthew Taylor and Philip Sawyers.

Ken Woods plays and discuss excerpts from Mahler’s 9th Symphony including some from his own recording with the English Symphony Orchestra. Few pieces of music are more powerful in depicting the searching bewilderment of the early 20th Century.
