Presented by Penny Gore.

Continuing with recordings taken at the Prague Spring International Festival earlier this year, today we hear works by Haydn - and a rare symphony by Leopold Mozart - with the specialist period-instrument French ensemble Les Arts Florissants, conducted by its founder William Christie. First comes Symphony No. 83, 'La Poule', 'The Hen', followed by the Cello Concerto No. 2 in D major, with soloist Cyril Poulet, then Leopold Mozart's Symphony in B flat, and to finish, a work by Haydn again, his Symphony No. 82, 'The Bear'.
The afternoon finishes with more material recorded recently in the Czech Republic, featuring composers of this land. It's a concert given by the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Radek Baborák, starting with Janacek Sinfonietta and finishing with Dvorak's Symphony No. 9 in E minor, 'From the New World'.
