Penny Gore presents a week of performances from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, including recent concerts and new studio recordings. Today features a concert the orchestra gave at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre with some staples of the romantic repertoire: Strauss, Brahms - and Leonard Elschenbroich is soloist in Elgar's Cello Concerto. Plus a new recording of the Symphony No.1 by the Anglo-Dutch composer Bernard van Dieren, scored for soloists, chorus and orchestra, and based on the same source material as Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde.
