This week's Afternoon on 3 features new recordings from the BBC performing groups. Today's programme includes music by Mozart and the beginning of a week long Tchaikovsky symphony sequence. There's also music by less well known anniversary composers: Armstrong Gibbs and Rutland Boughton both died 50 years ago in 1960, while the violinist-composer Ferdinand David was born 200 years in 1810 - less than a fortnight after Schumann and a year after his good friend Mendelssohn. Presented by Katie Derham. 2pm Mozart: Bassoon Concerto in B flat major, K191 Karen Geoghegan (bassoon) BBC Philharmonic Gianandrea Noseda (conductor) Rutland Boughton: Burglar Bill Cecil Armstrong Gibbs: Come, sleep BBC Singers Paul Brough (conductor) 2.40pm Lutoslawski: Symphony no.3 BBC Symphony Orchestra Edward Gardner (conductor) 3.10pm Ferdinand David: Violin Concerto no. 4 in E major, Op. 23 Hagai Shaham (violin) BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Martyn Brabbins (conductor) 3.35pm Christopher Gunning: Selection of music for television, including Five Little Pigs BBC Philharmonic Rumon Gamba (conductor) 4pm Tchaikovsky: Symphony no. 1 in G minor 'Winter Daydreams' BBC National Orchestra of Wales Grant Llewellyn (conductor).
