Penny Gore rounds off her week of programmes focusing on recent performances by the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Today both orchestras share equal billing. The BBC Philharmonic and conductor Nicholas Kraemer perform Haydn's Symphony no. 97, one of the composer's 'London' symphonies and a work full of march-like rhythms and fanfare motifs; and Berg's 7 Early Songs with mezzo Jennifer Johnston and conductor Philippe Bach.

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Douglas Boyd are joined by Anthony Marwood for two works by Schumann for violin and orchestra - including Schumann's own violin version of his cello concert - before Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles takes the reins for Mahler's 4th Symphony.
