Penny Gore presents music from the BBC SSO. Prokofiev: Symphony No 1; Piano Concerto No 1. Stravinsky: Petrushka. Tchaikovsky: Francesca da Rimini. Schumann: Violin Concerto.

Penny Gore presents highlights from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's recent concerts, including their special focus on music from 1911. From a concert conducted by Lan Shui, Prokofiev's youthfully virtuosic 1911 First Piano Concerto is performed by Russian piano whizz Denis Kozhukhin - as part of his complete Prokofiev Concerto cycle with the BBC SSO. Plus Prokofiev's Classical Symphony - music which addresses the past and the future - and works by two further Russian composers who look to tradition and innovation: Tchaikovsky's grand drama of the underworld, Francesca da Rimini; and the sparking of modernism heard in the original, richly orchestrated 1911 scoring of Stravinsky's Petrushka.

There's also a chance this week to hear selections from a recent concert by the orchestra with violinist Anthony Marwood exploring the music of Schumann: today, the Concerto in D minor.
