Jonathan Swain celebrates sunlight in music by Delius, Sibelius, James MacMillan and CPE Bach. Plus Schoenberg's Gurrelieder and works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky and Tippett.

Jonathan Swain celebrates sunlight in music by Delius, Sibelius, James MacMillan and CPE Bach. The week's Building a Library piece is an extended excerpt from Schoenberg's Gurrelieder, and the young artists in this Sunday's programme are Julie and Camille Berthollet, in works by Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky. The neglected classic is Tippett's Piano Concerto in a performance by Steven Osborne and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Martyn Brabbins.
