A Week in Sweden

Georgia Mann presents two concerts from Sweden and eavesdrops on the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra at BBC Music's Biggest Weekend in Perth.

Georgia Mann ends her week in Sweden with two complete concerts by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra featuring two cello concertos and music by native composers, including an enormous Symphony by one of the most controversial of all Swedish composers, Allan Pettersson.

And between those two concerts, at around half past three, there's the chance to eavesdrop on the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra performing in Perth at BBC Music's Biggest Weekend.
