Live from City Halls Glasgow.
Presented by Mary Ann Kennedy.
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's Associate Guest Conductor Andrew Manze play two powerful works by Sibelius in the first half, followed by Dvorak's 1895 Cello Concerto in the second.
Sibelius celebrated his Finnish heritage in Rakastava, which started life as a choral work on Finnish Poetry in 1893 but was recast in 1911 into its best known orchestral form. In the same year, a turbulent one for Sibelius, comes the brooding Fourth Symphony.
In the second half, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Andreas Brantelid performs Dvorak's Cello Concerto, evoking the proud spirit of his Czech homeland.
