Continuing this week's focus on the Viennese classics, today's programme opens with a live concert by the BBC Philharmonic from their home at MediaCity, Salford Quays. The orchestra's Italian Conductor Laureate Gianandrea Noseda joins them for a programme featuring Mozart, Haydn and Richard Strauss, plus Noseda's fellow countryman Alfredo Casella. The soloist in the Haydn and Strauss is Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ruby Hughes.
