Innovative audio-visual concert presentation by David Robertson, the BBC Symphony Orchestra's principal guest conductor, at the Barbican in London.
Performances of three of Debussy's most evocative masterpieces - Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Jeux and La Mer - are combined with images of impressionistic painting by Monet and Japanese wood engravings by Hokusai, allowing one art form to illuminate the other and giving us a new way of hearing and seeing.
