Music from the 18th and 20th centuries, both classical and non-classical, is threaded together by improvisations. France - mainly Paris - is the starting point of the programme but nocturnal wanderings under the light of the moon see it end up on Broadway with Kurt Weill's film music in breathtaking arrangements for the Sheridan Ensemble by Philip Mayers.
