Penny Gore with music from the BBC SO and Singers. Mozart: Violin Concerto No 4. Coles: Cortege. Tavener: Hymn to the Mother of God. Plus Gibbons, Vaughan Williams and Dvorak.

Penny Gore continues a week of recent recordings by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, today with a strong British flavour. Two short works by the Scottish composer Cecil Coles bookend a concert that includes music by Tavener, Stanford and Tomkins which is given by the BBC Singers. Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Vaughan Williams' single-movement work 'A Road all Paved with Stars', incorporating the finest music from his opera 'The Poisoned Kiss'. Plus Mozart's 4th Violin Concerto performed by the young German violinist Augustin Hadelich, and the programme ends with Dvorak's 7th Symphony.
