With Penny Gore. Halvorsen: Fossegrimen. Ludvig Irgens Jensen: Passacaglia. Bartok: Violin Concerto No 1. Rachmaninov: Symphony No 2. Geir Tveitt: Suite No 4, Op 151.

Penny Gore this week introduces recent concert performances by some of Norway's leading orchestras. Today the highly regarded Oslo Philharmonic are heard in music for a 'Troll Play,' and a dignified Passacaglia, much admired by Carl Nielsen. Then the orchestra's new principal conductor guides them through the luxuriant romanticism of Rachmaninov's Second Symphony.
