Despite the statement above, the broadcast on 27 March was scheduled to have been from a live concert which - as your previous correspondents have correctly surmised - was cancelled as a result of emergency pandemic measures (I was scheduled to have reviewed the concert).

Oddly enough Radio Times for that week advertised the VAUGHAN Williams Violin Concerto as forming part of the broadcast, which I presume was a simple mistake. The programme for the BBC NOW season clearly showed that the intention had been to perform the GRACE Williams. I would have thought however that a word of explanation from the announcer as to the change of schedule would have been useful.

Hopefully the BBC will re-schedule the performance of the Grace Williams concerto for next season.

There is an interesting article about the composer here:

He also published a disc with three symphonies by Ludkevich - "Symphony", written in 1942, "Precarpathian Symphony (1951) and" Symphony in A Minor "(1963).
The three symphonies of the Ukrainian classic are unknown, and they are professionally made and written at a difficult time.

Thanks for the advice. I will try listening to the whole concert in order to hear Symphony No. 2. I do hope the violin concerto will be broadcast eventually.

Yes, I particularly wanted to hear the violin concerto as I already have a commercial recording of Sym 2.  I am assuming the concert was changed due to coronavirus, but a few words of explanation from the announcer would have been appreciated.  Also some indication as to when (or whether) we might hear the violin concerto again.

I don't know why we can't play the symphony from the "music played" list on the website - the play button is greyed out.   But you can still hear the whole concert by clicking on "listen now".  The Grace Williams symphony begins at 1h 49m.  Alternatively I think you should be able to get straight to the concert on:

This may not apply if you are outwith the UK.

Thank you very much for pointing out this recording indeed! My impression is that Lyudkevych's work list often causes confusion (at least when it comes to the lesser-known, not commercially recorded works). For instance, his F Sharp Minor Piano Concerto from 1957 is sometimes labeled No. 2, sometimes No. 3.

With respect to the symphonies, things are not clear either. If somebody counts three Lyudkevych symphonies then the first one could also be his "Caucasus" cantata, which is labeled Symphony-Cantata. The A Minor symphony you found seems to be listed nowhere else. One guess could be that it is the same work the Russian Wikipedia lists as "Suite in A Major" (the work does end in A Major) from 1962. Anyway we can only speculate...

Well, this is very disappointing. Trying to listen on BBC Sounds and the Symphony No. 2 won't play, though everything else in that concert seems to be available - and I see no sign of the Violin Concerto on Friday 27th - just the Sea Sketches. Another triumph for the BBC.

The translation from Google says "For the first time, one of the three symphonies of the classic of Ukrainian music, Stanislav Ludkevich, is freely available.".
The date is 1963, so I take it to be the last symphony. Subcarpathian is 2nd and there is a Sinfonietta from 1943.

Bo Holten. conductor

Knudåge Riisager (6 March 1897 in Kunda, Estonia – 26 December 1974 in Copenhagen, Denmark) was a Danish composer.
Knudåge Riisager was born in Estonia of Danish parents. His father Emil Riisager was an engineer, and the family returned to Denmark in 1900 when Knudåge was three years old.

He graduated from Copenhagen University where he received violin lessons from Peder Møller, and studied music theory under Otto Malling and Peder Gram. For many years he worked in a government job, and also as a composer. In 1923 he went to Paris to study with Albert Roussel and Paul Le Flem, where he experienced at first hand French neoclassicism and the music of Igor Stravinsky and Les Six.[2] Later he also studied in Leipzig with Hermann Grabner.
Knudåge Riisager's international fame is largely due to his extensive work in ballet music, which was primarily a result of collaboration with Harald Lander. The first work he composed for the Royal Danish Theatre was music for the ballet Benzin by Storm P. staged by Elna Ørnberg in 1930.

Knudåge Riisager was also an industrious writer: his bibliography includes nearly 400 titles spread over six decades. In 1956–67 he was director of the Royal Danish Academy of Music. His compositions are stored in the Music and Theatre Department at the Royal Danish Library.
