BBC Symphony Orchestra in Bad Kissingen

Duration:
2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 09 July 2012

Penny Gore presents a week of Afternoon on 3 featuring recent tour concerts and studio recordings by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, plus on Friday the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on tour in China just this week.

Recurring features across the week include music by Dvorak's son-in-law Josef Suk; and new BBC SO recordings with composer-conductor Oliver Knussen, celebrating his 60th birthday on 12 June this year by conducting one of his own works (today) plus French and Russian music.

To launch the week today, the BBC SO and their outgoing Chief Conductor Jiri Belohlavek are joined on tour at the German spa town of Bad Kissingen by soprano Kate Royal and violinist Leonidas Kavakos. Their concert, given a fortnight ago, features music from Mozart via Brahms and Dvorak to Richard Strauss and Franz Lehar. Plus Oliver Knussen conducts his own music and a symphony by the Russian Nikolai Miaskovsky; and Jiri Belohlavek conducts Suk's symphonic poem Prague - looking forward to his concerts with the BBC SO at the 2012 Prague Spring Festival, which you can hear tomorrow.
