BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Karlowicz: Prologue (The White Dove). Lutoslawski: Chantefleurs et Chantefables. Ravel: Mother Goose Suite. Plus Tchaikovsky and Sibelius.

Continuing Afternoon on 3's celebration of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's visit to the 2010 St Magnus Festival in the Orkney Isles.
This afternoon you can hear a concert recorded on 21 June representing the Polska! Year in the St. Magnus Festival, introducing Polish talent to the UK. The BBC SSO is joined by Polish conductor Michal Dworzynski in works by two of his compatriots, Karlowicz and Lutoslawski. The Lutoslawski, with Ukrainian soprano Olga Pasiecznik, is Chantefleurs et Chantefables - the first of two childhood evocations, as it's followed by Ravel's Mother Goose Suite. One of the greatest Russian Symphonies ends the concert.
Finally today, music from the BBC SSO's 2007 visit to the St Magnus Festival: Sibelius is a composer long associated with the orchestra, and the northern influence of Orkney is especially audible in this performance. Presented by Katie Derham
