The centenary of Welsh composer Daniel Jones is further marked this week with a chance to hear his Symphony No.12. You can also hear Susan Bickley in Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder, settings of texts by the composer's mistress, Mathilde, and in part a testbed for his opera Tristan. To frame them are two Romantic Piano Concertos, one from 'the Berlioz of the Piano', Alkan's Concerto da Camera in A Minor Op.10, No.1 in the hands of Marc-Andre Hamelin and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. And we begin with Grieg's Piano Concerto in a sparky performance from former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili who joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Christoph König. Presented by Penny Gore.
