BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Strauss: Don Juan. Haydn: Cello Concerto in C. Brahms: Symphony No 1. Wallace: The Passing of Beatrice. Shostakovich: Symphony No 1.

This week Louise Fryer presents recent concerts by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with a special focus on cello concertos and some of Shostakovich's best known works.

Today Donald Runnicles conducts the BBC SSO at the City Halls in Glasgow in a romantic programme - from the heroic overture Don Juan to the life-affirming warmth of Brahms towering first symphony, via Haydn's tuneful Cello Concerto. The orchestra also explores music written closer to home by the heroically named William Wallace and Shostakovich's 1st symphony with Swiss maestro Stefan Blunier.
