From today's Guardian Radio 3 listing:
2.00pm British Symphony Series

  • Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra

  • Strauss: Duett-concertino

  • Dallapiccola: Frammenti sinfonici (Marsia)

  • Martinu: Symphony No 4

not a lot of British symphonies there I thought - and illustrated by a picture of Bartók (hardly a Brit!) who only wrote one early atypical tone poem/symphony Kossuth. When you see a full entry for the afternoon the Vaughan Williams Symphony No 6 is missing (as well as Schoenberg's Survivor from Warsaw) - I might catch the whole thing on 'listen again' one afternoon this week..
