The BBC Symphony Orchestra's brass and wind sections shine at this afternoon concert featuring contemporary music for wind and brass instruments under the baton of clarinettist and conductor Michael Collins.
British pianist Ronan O'Hora performs Homages, Edward Gregson's rhythmic Concerto for Piano and Winds inspired by the piano concertos of Stravinsky, Bartók, Rachmaninov and Poulenc. Stravinsky's 1947 revision of his ritualistic Symphonies of Winds Instruments and shorter works by British composers Elizabeth Maconchy, Malcolm Arnold and Colin Matthews complete this programme at the BBC Maida Vale Studios.
This concert is recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3's Afternoon on 3.
