Schubert's 'Great' Ninth Symphony is often regarded as the pinnacle of his orchestral writing. Andrew Manze - admired for his interpretations of the classical canon - conducts this mighty symphonic testament with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, preceded by an early 20th-Century English work which is also central to Manze's musical personality.

Nicholas Daniel is the soloist in Vaughan Williams' Concerto for Oboe and Strings, and the orchestra begins with music by Mendelssohn, his Concert Overture, The Fair Melusine.
