Episode 2

A lively concert opener from Tarik O'Regan launches today's programme in our continuing BBC Symphony Orchestra focus on Afternoon on 3 this week. To end there's a fascinating chamber orchestra version of a Mahler symphony, and in between there's music connected with some of Mahler's greatest fans, Alban Berg and Benjamin Britten. Stunning soprano Claire Booth sings Berg's concert suite from his opera Wozzeck, and Andrew Litton conducts William Walton's tribute to his colleague Britten.
