Hoddinott: Overture (Jack Straw). Matthias: Piano Concerto No 2. Daniel Jones: Symphony No 10. Handel: Cara sposa (Rinaldo). Rimsky-Korsakov: Sheherezade. Plus Henrique Oswald.

Katie Derham profiles the recent music-making of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in the concert hall and in the recording studio. Today's music ranges from an anguished late symphony by Dylan Thomas's friend Daniel Jones to the perfumed oriental world of Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade. Also today, Llyr Williams plays William Matthias's extrovert Second Piano Concerto and Arturo Pizarro uncovers a seldom-heard piano concerto from late nineteenth-century Brazil.
