Afternoon on 3, Tippett Plus Episode 1 of 3

This week Afternoon on 3 celebrates the music of Michael Tippett with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Today's offering includes a concert they gave last week featuring his Third Symphony paired with Beethoven's Triple Concerto - you can hear Tippett's own Triple Concerto tomorrow.

And as part of the Baroque Spring celebrations, the orchestra have specially recorded Tippett's Fantasia Concertante on a Theme of Corelli to kick off the whole week - together with his Handel Fantasia for Wednesday's programme.
