Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Mussorgsky, Schumann, Debussy

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Composer and conductor Oliver Knussen returns to the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to lead a typically eclectic programme from Glasgow City Halls. It opens with Knussen's own arrangement of Mussorgsky's vignette 'The Seamstress' before they are joined by Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen in Schumann's Cello Concerto - one of the composer's more daring and adventurous works. The concert ends with Debussy's score for his ballet about a box of toys which come to life
