The BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers celebrate International Women's Day 2016 with several works inspired by natural phenomena. Oboist Emily Pailthorpe is the soloist in Thea Musgrave's virtuosic Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra, Helios, depicting the circular movements around the world of the ancient Greek sun god. And the BBC Singers and BBC Symphony Orchestra join forces in Judith Weir's delicate piece for orchestra and chorus Moon and Star - a portrayal of the vastness of space, with words by nineteenth century poet Emily Dickinson. Plus works by another Scot, Helen Grime, American Libby Larsen and Russian-born Swedish resident Victoria Borisova-Ollas. Jessica Cottis conducts.
Grace Rossiter conducts the BBC Singers in a cappella works both religious and nature-inspired.
