Afternoon on 3, Russian Music Episode 1 of 4

This week features the BBC Orchestras in Russian music, plus a studio recording the BBC Singers have made of the music of Edmund Rubbra. Today's programme includes a concert given by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales a couple of weeks ago in Swansea in which they're joined by violinist Daniel Hope for Shostakovich's First Violin Concerto. And the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra perform music from Prokofiev's ever-popular ballet, Romeo and Juliet.
