Classical album review: Mark-Anthony, Turnage
Speranza etc (LSO Live)

From the Wreckage, Turnage’s 2005 trumpet concerto, was written for the Swedish virtuoso Hakan Hardenberger. Speranza, an LSO commission, is played without the fourth of five movements that Turnage dropped after February’s premiere.

Wembley Stadium at night suits The Wall. It feels oppressive and chaotic up in the stands of this aircraft hanger of a venue, and Roger Waters’ most literally monumental achievement has more self-loathing, rage and disgust in its bones than any other rock show that’s filled stadiums worldwide with people wanting to hear it.

Feel the noise: Andy Murray sees off Leonardo Mayer on Friday night

US Open: Racket makes Andy Murray a good shout for success
