From this autumn Afternoon on 3 features enhanced coverage of the BBC's orchestras and BBC Singers - launched this week by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. They start with a performance celebrating Sir Henry Wood in the wake of the BBC Proms, and end with a concert under the dynamic Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard, featuring Radio 3 New Generation Artist Henk Neven singing Schubert. In between, a sumptuous nocturne from Vaughan Williams's Dutch contemporary (and friend of Mahler) Alphons Diepenbrock, and dark Shostakovich quartet music played by the full strings of the BBC SO, directed by their leader Andrew Haveron.
