This week features the BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers in highlights from their Villa-Lobos Total Immersion concerts recorded at The Barbican earlier this month. Today's programme includes his Uirpuru, based on the legend of the enchanted bird, guitar etudes performed by Radio 3 New Generation Artist Sean Shibe and his Bachianas Brasileiras IX, a highly virtuosic prelude and fugue for unaccompanied voices.

Introduced by Penny Gore from the Radio 3 pop-up studio at London's Southbank Centre. If you're in the area, visit the Radio 3 studio and performance space in the Royal Festival Hall Riverside Café to listen to Radio 3, ask questions and enjoy the special events.
