Live from the Bridgewater Hall.

Presented by Stuart Flinders.

Sir Mark Elder conducts the Hallé in an all-Russian programme of music. The first half of the concert is devoted to two of Borodin's much-loved works, his overture to Prince Igor followed by the Second Symphony. Pianist Sofya Gulyak, the first ever female winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition, joins them in a performance of Tchaikovsky's Concert Fantasy, and the programme concludes with the stirring 1812 overture.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Vassily Sinaisky, performs Dvorak's Carnival Overture, Chopin's Piano Concerto No 2 with Daniil Trifonov, and Schmidt's Symphony No 4.

Dvorak: Carnival Overture

Chopin: Piano Concerto No 2 in F minor

Daniil Trifonov (piano)

BBC Philharmonic

Vassily Sinaisky (conductor)

Meet Franz Schmidt, last of the Austrian Romantics. As storm clouds gathered over his native Austria, Schmidt poured a lifetime of heartbreak into his beautiful Fourth Symphony; music of profound emotion, glorious melody and some of the most tender poetry in 20th century music. Prize-winning 21-year-old virtuoso Daniil Trifonov is the perfect soloist for Chopin's youthful Second Concerto. Dvorak's colourful and exuberant overture starts the evening.

Live from The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Presented by Martin Handley

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Juanjo Mena, performs George Benjamin's Ringed by the Flat Horizon, Haydn's Cello Concerto in C with Johannes Moser, and Dvorak's Symphony No 7.

George Benjamin: Ringed by the Flat Horizon

Haydn: Cello Concerto in C

Johannes Moser (cello)

BBC Philharmonic

Juanjo Mena (conductor)

The concert begins with George Benjamin's electrifying musical landscape, and Johannes Moser performs Haydn's irresistible First Cello Concerto. Dvorak's Seventh Symphony is one of his darkest but most sublime works. Dvorak resolved that this Symphony would reflect his country's struggle for freedom, and his own personal struggle to reconcile his desire for peace with his Czech patriotism. He said "The opening of my Symphony flashed into my mind on the arrival of the festive train bringing our countryment from Pest".
