Penny Gore presents recent performances by the BBC Philharmonic with a focus on Beethoven and on Benjamin Britten in his centenary year.

Britten was born in 1913 and this year will see many centenary homages to him and his music. The juxtaposition with Beethoven throughout this week of Afternoon on 3 is an intriguing one, as Britten was by means complimentary about Beethoven's music. This is a chance to see what you think: does their music have anything or nothing in common? Is it in some ways opposite yet complementary?

The BBC Philharmonic and Andrew Gourlay begin the week with a work by Britten's composition teacher, Frank Bridge, his symphonic poem Isabella based on Keats' poem. A set of songs by the fourteen year old Britten already shows more than mere promise: there's already a distinctive voice and a true flair for orchestral colour. BBC New Generation Artist Robin Tritschler sings his Four French Songs. Staying with things French, Andrew Gourlay returns to conduct a complete performance of Ravel's fairytale ballet, Mother Goose.

The second part of today's programme is a concert given at Victoria Hall, Hanley - the BBC Philharmonic's most recent visit to the Potteries, with its Conductor Laureate, Gianandrea Noseda. It combines two French works - Fauré's music for Pelleas and Melisande and Ravel's G major Piano Concerto with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet as soloist - with Beethoven's mould-breaking Fifth Symphony, the first of three great Beethoven Symphonies over the next three days.

This week Afternoon on 3 features the BBC Philharmonic, marking the 50th anniversary of the death of Hindemith in 1963, and presenting brand-new recordings of all five of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos with soloist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

Today's programme includes two Prokofiev Piano Concertos - the first and last, his Fifth. Between them you can hear two of Hindemith's greatest works as well as a homage to him by Walton and music by Weber, who inspired him.

Penny Gore presents recent performances by the BBC Philharmonic with a focus on Beethoven and on Benjamin Britten in his centenary year

Today's programme begins and ends with music making from the BBC Philharmonic's tour to Japan in 2011, beginning with Mendelssohn's idyllic overture to A Midsummer Night's Dream and ending with Tchaikovsky's ever popular First Piano Concerto. Nobuyuki Tsujii is the pianist and Yutaka Sado conducts.

Today's tribute to Britten, born 100 years ago, comes in the shape of his song cycle 'Les Illuminations', written for the Swiss-born soprano Sophie Wyss who had settled in England. Britten's settings of Rimbaud's poetry pushed his star further into the international sphere, again - like the music in yesterday's programme - with a French text. The singer in this recent performance is the Swedish born Lisa Larsson and the BBC Philharmonic are conducted by Antonello Manacorda.

At the centre of the programme is a concert conducted by Paul Daniel: Haydn's effervescent Symphony No. 79, Ravel's homage to a Spanish princess and the Symphony which Wagner dubbed "the apotheosis of the dance," Beethoven's Seventh.

Penny Gore presents recent performances by the BBC Philharmonic with a focus on Beethoven and on Benjamin Britten in his centenary year.

Antonello Manacorda conducts the BBC Philharmonic in concert last month at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall. The centrepiece is one of the last pieces Britten worked on, Lachrymae. Based on two pieces by Dowland - also an anniversary composer (it's 450 years since he was born) - the music crystallises at the end to reveal Dowland's "If my complaints could passions move." The BBC Philharmonic's principal violist Steven Burnard is the soloist in this performance.

Before it, we hear an homage by Estonian Arvo Pärt to the composer who he wished he had met and whose music he says "touched such a chord in me". Beethoven once commented that no-one could love the countryside as much as he did, and his most affectionate portrait of it ends our BBC Philharmonic concert today - a chance to compare and contrast the music of the two great 'B's being celebrated in this week of programmes.
