AO320120713"The BBC National Orchestra of Wales are just finishing a Chinese tour with their outgoing Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer, and Penny Gore rounds off this week of Afternoon on 3 with the concert they gave last Sunday in the capital Beijing. The orchestra's principal clarinettist Robert Plane is the soloist in Mozart's well-loved Concerto, alongside more music from Europe - by Johann Strauss; China itself - by Qigang Chen; and the huge country in between - Mussorgsky's world-famous Pictures at an Exhibition, in the equally world-famous orchestration by Ravel.

Plus a final flourish from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and their own outgoing Chief Conductor, the Czech Jiří Bělohlávek, in their series of music by Dvorak's son-in-law Josef Suk: his beautiful symphonic poem telling A Summer's Tale.
