Presented by Penny Gore. Bartok: Dance Suite, Piano Concerto No 3. Hindemith: Piano Concerto for the left hand, Op 29; Symphony (Mathis der Maler).

Penny Gore presents.

Live at 2pm - The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins perform music by Bartok and Hindemith, including Bartok's 3rd Piano Concerto - his last completed work - written not as a commission by a starry soloist or big arts organisation, but as a final gift for his wife, filled with a lifetime's worth of a shared love of folk-inspired music.

The programme also includes the first UK performance of a piece by Paul Hindemith - his Piano Concerto for the left hand. Hindemith wrote the concerto for Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right arm in the First World War, but Wittgenstein never played it and the world premiere took place in Berlin as recently as 2004, long after both dedicatee and composer were dead.
