Welcome to the San Francisco Symphony podcast series. Each week, we'll be exploring a particular classical work to be performed by the orchestra during the 2010-11 season. We'll also bring you occasional special podcasts. Thanks for joining us.
Donald Macleod explores the life and work of composers. Composer Of The Week is one of BBC Radio 3's longest-running series and is broadcast on Radio 3 Monday to Friday at 12 noon. It's a guide to finding out more about composers, and an introduction to exploring their music. This podcast episode is an edited compliation of the entire week's programmes and is published each Friday lunchtime. The podcast is only available within the UK. For regulatory reasons, most classical music podcasts offered by the BBC are only permitted to contain limited musical extracts.
