Penny Gore continues Radio 3's month of programmes complementing the BBC4 series "Symphony" - including every note of every Symphony featured in the television series.

Today Afternoon on 3 and In Tune join forces to recreate Beethoven's notorious concert in Vienna in 1808 featuring the premieres of his 5th and 6th Symphonies, his 4th Piano Concerto... and a few other things besides! Both the BBC Philharmonic and BBC National Orchestra of Wales will be performing live this afternoon - with Beethoven's Sixth Symphony in Salford and the Fifth in Cardiff. Then at half past four Penny Gore hands on the baton to Suzy Klein for the final straight.
