If you had to choose the ten greatest musical moments in the orchestral repertoire what would they be? The lark’s ascent? Tristan’s chord? Romeo and Juliet’s relations? Khachaturian’s, or Barber’s, or Albinoni’s adagio? Everything by Mahler? A theme from Beethoven’s 3rd, 5th, 7th or 9th symphony or even the introductory bars of a certain cello concerto? The possibilities are as endless as they are enticing.

Pit your wits against the experts and see if you agree. Prepare to be delighted, excited, bewildered, infuriated (when your find your favourite is missing) and above all entertainingly informed as presenter/conductor Dr Philip Norman CNZM guides you through what he (and his advisors) believe to be the ten greatest musical moments. Find out why he considers these to be so, and revel in what will be an exhilarating excursion through the best bits of classical music history.
