Episode 3

With Katie Derham.

The BBC Philharmonic returned just a couple of weeks ago from Japan, and they end this Afternoon on 3 with a performance from that tour: Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto with Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii and Japanses conductor Yutaka Sado.

Before that, you can hear the orchestra in earlier visits to Spain and Germany: Gianandrea Noseda conducts Britten's passionate Sinfonia da Requiem in Barcelona, and his successor as the BBC Philharmonic's Chief Conductor, Juanjo Mena, conducts Schubert's Unfinished Symphony in Nuremberg.
