Friday - BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Ian Skelly presents concert performances given by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, including Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Strauss's tone poem, Aus Italien.

Ian Skelly presents performances given by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. This afternoon's 2pm concert, recorded in Inverness, features orchestral masterpieces by 19th-century composers: Brahms's Haydn Variations, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and Strauss's tone poem Aus Italien. Then, music by Bohemian composers: Dvorak's overture to his little-known opera Vanda opens this concert, which also includes Janacek's Suite for Strings, and Dvorak's folk-tale inspired The Wild Dove, reflecting Afternoon Concert's continuing exploration of the romantic tone poem. Plus Messiaen's L'Ascension, four meditations on the Ascension of Christ.
