Afternoon on 3, Russian Music Episode 2 of 2

The BBC Symphony Orchestra performs masterpieces by great Russian composers, and presents the new generation of soloists and conductors.

Today there are four of the new generation of conductors from four different European countries, all making their mark: Czech Tomas Hanus, Pole Krzysztof Urbanski, Norwegian Eivind Gullberg-Jensen and Finn Pietari Inkinen. Plus a rare opportunity to hear Dvorak's Biblical Songs.
