Katie Derham presents a week of Afternoon on 3 featuring recent concerts by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with a special focus on Russian composers. In today's programme a thread of folk music runs through Mussorgsky's A Night on the Bare Mountain and the Overture on Russian Themes by Mussorgsky's friend Rimsky-Korsakov. There'll be a different reminder of Russian history in Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5, composed in the summer of 1944, and premiered in wartime Moscow to the sound of gunfire. The Prokofiev concludes a concert the orchestra gave in Aberdeen in November with conductor Andrew Litton - which also includes violinist Nicola Benedetti playing Szymanowski's first Violin Concerto, the work with which she won BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2004.

Vaughan Williams:

The Lark Ascending

Nicola Benedetti (violin)

Christoph König (conductor)

Elgar: Une Voix dans le désert, Op. 77 (1915)

Susan Gritton (soprano)

Today's main concert of Butterworth, Vaughan Williams and Schubert was given in Glasgow less than an fortnight ago by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and their Associate Guest Conductor Andrew Manze. George Butterworth, who was killed on the Western Front in 1916, is the direct connection with this week's other theme of the First World War - also reflected today by three works Elgar wrote to support the war effort, and by another concertante work by Vaughan Williams, possibly the best-loved piece he ever wrote: 'The Lark Ascending'. Sketched as the war was starting, but not finished till after 1918, in a very different world, the music has been seen as a lament for England's supposed lost innocence.

Katie Derham continues a week featuring the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra who, to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Erik Chisholm, recently gave the first performance for more than 60 years of the Glasgow-born composer's Violin Concerto. Last heard at the 1952 Edinburgh Festival, it's a tour-de-force for both soloist and orchestra, richly coloured by the composer's deep interest in Indian classical music. Around this, two works strongly associated with Chisholm who conducted the British premiere of Mozart's opera Idomeneo with the Glasgow Grand Opera Society in 1934, from which we'll hear the exquisite ballet music, and Bartok's second orchestral suite. Chisholm befriended Bartok, bringing him to Glasgow twice to perform recitals of his music, and Chisholm was described as a 'Scottish Bartok' because of his use of folk idioms in his music. Plus Mozart's Fourth Horn Concerto with soloist Richard Watkins, and a selection from Mahler's song cycle Des Knaben Wunderhorn with the mezzo-soprano Alice Coote.
