EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Soprano Christine Brewer is widely regarded as one of the finest performers of Richard Strauss' achingly beautiful Four Last Songs - his farewell to the world.

She performs at The Lammermuir Festival this year on Saturday 20 September at 7.00pm in St Mary's Haddington with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Marytn Brabbins. www.lammermuirfestival.co.uk for more details and tickets
