Symphony No. 2 in B minor . played by BBC Scottish Orchestra
Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Ian Whyte
The history of Borodin's Second Symphony is closely linked with that of his opera Prince Igor. The first ideas for the symphony occurred to him early in 1869, but in April of that year Stassov suggested the opera subject to him, and for a time he devoted all his energies to Igor. Then he decided (temporarily) that the subject was unsuitable. ' Don't worry about it ', he wrote to Stassov. ' The material won't be wasted. It will all go into my Second Symphony.'

Jane Austen 's ' Pride and Prejudice ', written one hundred and forty years ago, is as alive today as it ever was. Indeed it has become the subject of a popular film recently released in the West End. Its shrewd portrayal of character and its acid, if gentle, humour lose nothing by translation into the medium of drama.
Celia Johnson played the part of Elizabeth with memorable charm in the production of Helen Jerome 's adaptation of ' Pride and Prejudice' at the St. James's Theatre, London, in 1936.
