Looking forward to one of this week's Proms artists, Valery Gergiev, by playing his Mariinsky Orchestra recording of Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony, James Jolly then focuses on the music of Prokofiev's teachers, colleagues and friends. The British season looks at Herbert Howells' Clarinet Sonata, and the week's Americana is Arthur Foote's Serenade for Strings. This week's young artist is pianist Cyrill Ibrahim.
