Martin Fröst's recent concerts with us were a sensation. He is probably the greatest clarinettist in the world, but more than that, he's a marvellous communicator and fantastic to watch. Astonishingly, he can dance while he plays, and his brother's new work has him performing as a marionette!

Martin Fröst's recording of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto was named the best in a blind test by specialist magazine Clasica-Répertoire and his performance has been watched more than half a million times on YouTube – testament to the popularity of both musician and work. ABC Classic FM listeners voted the Mozart one of their top ten favourite concertos and many remember it from the film Out of Africa.

Satu Vänskä leads music from her homeland Finland and plays Paganini-inspired music on the ACO's Stradivarius violin.

*Brenton Broadstock's Never Truly Lost has been commissioned by Rob and Nancy Pallin for Rob's 70th birthday, in memory of Rob's father, Paddy Pallin.
