Music to accompany the BBC Four Symphony series. Haydn: Symphony No 6. Mozart: Symphony No 41. Beethoven: Symphony No 2. Mendelssohn: Symphony No 4. Haydn: Symphony No 104.

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 (which continues tonight). Today Katie presents five different BBC orchestras in a programme juxtaposing the first of Haydn's superb trilogy of early Symphonies named after Morning, Noon and Evening, with the final symphonic masterpieces of both Mozart and Haydn, and Beethoven's second - plus the sunniest Symphony by one of Beethoven's greatest fans, Felix Mendelssohn.
