Music accompanying the BBC Four Symphony series. Stamitz: Symphony in D. Schumann: Piano Concerto in A minor. Cannabich: Symphony No 48. Mozart: Symphonies Nos 31 and 39.

Katie Derham continues Radio 3's month of programmes complementing the BBC4 series "Symphony" - including every note of every Symphony featured in the television series. Today's programme begins with the Ulster Orchestra in a live concert from Belfast, featuring great Symphonies by Haydn and Mozart - plus Radio 3 New Generation Artist Benjamin Grosvenor playing Schumann, and a key work from the mid-1700s that helped to establish the standard four-movement form of the classical Symphony. The programme ends with another Mozart Symphony - the first in his final trilogy of masterpieces which you can hear over the next three days.
