Katie Derham presents a week of programmes featuring recent concerts by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, highlighting British music and Romantic favourites.

Costa Rican-born conductor Giancarlo Guerrero makes his debut with the orchestra in a Swansea concert of youthful works by Brahms, Richard Strauss and Shostakovich. The orchestra's principal horn, Tim Thorpe, performs Richard Strauss's demanding first concerto. Shostakovich wrote his First Symphony while still a teenager; the work unequivocally established him as the first great Soviet composer.

William Mathias's tone poem, Helios, precedes a performance of Dvorak's spirited Eighth Symphony, recorded at Marlborough College's semi-circular Memorial Hall.

The young Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang is the soloist in Bruch's popular First Violin Concerto. The Seventh Symphony by Dvorak is one of the composer's darkest works, sparked off by the Third Symphony of his friend and mentor Brahms.

Richard Hickox conducts Frank Bridge's 1911 suite for orchestra, The Sea, the composer's best-known work. Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis, written in exile in the 1940s, is preceded by the most famous work by the composer who inspired it.
