The BBC Symphony Orchestra have recently returned from their tour of China. Some of their performances are being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 this week during the ‘Afternoon on 3‘ slot.
Today’s concert featured Dvorak’s Symphony No.9 – of which I’ve included some of the more important aspects of the work in the event you haven’t listened to it before.
:: Listen to Dvorak’s Symphony No.9 from BBC Radio 3’s Afternoon on 3 – 2 minutes 16 seconds in – (available until Monday 7 June 2010)
:: The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra will be performing Dvorak’s 9th Symphony in the BBC Proms on Thursday 29 July. A heartily recommended concert if you can get along. Otherwise listen live on BBC Radio 3.
