Live from the Music Hall, Aberdeen.
Presented by Jamie MacDougall.
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor, Ilan Volkov, in a thought-provoking programme of contrasts. Wagner's Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde opens the concert. Then the the young Romanian mezzo-soprano Ruxandra Donose joins them for a performance of Berlioz's La Mort de Cleopatre. After the interval, Julian Anderson's short piece Eden looks back hauntingly to an earlier time, with its evocative memories of 16th century viol music; and the concert ends with Sibelius's stirring Second Symphony.
