BBC Singers at Maida Vale

Gabriella Teychenné conducts the BBC Singers in music by Aaron Copland and Thea Musgrave. Plus, the BBC Symphony Orchestra plays Mahler, Hindemith, Tchaikovsky and Florence Price.

The BBC Singers are at Maida Vale Studios for a concert of music by just two composers - Aaron Copland and Thea Musgrave. Gabriella Teychenné conducts.

Following that concert, there's a final visit of the week to the 66th International Rostrum of Composers in Argentina, and a piece by the young Argentinian composer Melissa Foss Hyatt - "Hanblecheyapi", written in 2018.

The programme continues with a recording made by violinist Guy Braunstein of one of Tchaikovsky's best-known miniatures for violin and orchestra, followed by a final concert from the BBC Symphony Orchestra at Maida Vale. Mei-Ann Chen conducts arrangements of Florence Price piano pieces, four of Mahler's most heartfelt Lieder with Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ema Nikolovska, plus works by Hindemeith, Malcolm Forsyth and An-Lun Huang.
