Katie Derham with music from the BBC SSO. Maxwell Geddes: Ombre. Rodrigo: Concierto de Aranjuez. Mozart: Adagio for Glass Harmonica; Symphony No 41. Plus Prokofiev and Beethoven.

Katie Derham presents a week of Afternoon on 3 featuring recent concerts by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with a special focus on Russian composers.

Today's programme finds the orchestra at Ayr Town Hall, including a complete concert conducted there by Andrew Manze just a couple of weeks ago. Finnish pianist Olli Mustonen plays part of Prokofiev's Six Pieces for Piano, continuing the week's Russian theme. By way of complement there's brand new music - a world premiere in John Maxwell Geddes' An Ayrshire Suite - and two great symphonies from the heart of the repertoire: Mozart's Jupiter and Beethoven's Pastoral. Andrew Manze conducts both, and we'll also hear his orchestration of Mozart's Adagio for Glass Harmonica.
