Arvo Pärt: Symphony No 3

Edvard Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor

Interval: Proms Plus. Presenter Ian Skelly introduces Sibelius' 5th Symphony together with Radio 3's New Generation Thinker, Leah Broad and musicologist Prof. Tim Howell. Recorded earlier at the Imperial College Union.

Jean Sibelius: Symphony No 5 in E flat major

A concert with a Nordic flavour from Paavo Järvi and the Estonian Festival Orchestra (making its Proms debut) pairs music by Grieg and Sibelius with Estonia's own national composer, Arvo Pärt.

Celebrated Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili - a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist - performs one of the great Romantic piano concertos.

Beloved for its generous melodies and dramatic gestures, Grieg's concerto is matched for sonic drama by Sibelius's stirring Fifth Symphony.

Arvo Pärt's eclectic Third Symphony, with its echoes of Renaissance polyphony and Orthodox chant, opens the concert.

Broadcast on BBC Four on Friday 17 August.
