Ulster Orchestra Week on BBC Radio 3

A week of Ulster Orchestra recordings on BBC Radio 3. 

Starting from Monday 18th November, BBC Radio 3 will be devoting a whole week of the Afternoon Concert to the Ulster Orchestra. 

With some amazing highlights from the last season, including Rafael Payare conducting Shoshtakovitch's Symphony No.7 (Leningrad) and Alexy Sadler performing Tchaikovsky's Variations on a Rococo Theme, it's a perfect opportunity to relive some of 2019's best concerts.
