The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is conducted by their Principal Guest Conductor Ilan Volkov in a concert of music by Polish visionaries. The Orchestra's Musika Polska Season -exploring the wealth of musical riches from Poland- continues tonight with works by two composers of subsequent generations, Szymanowksi and Lutoslawski, who created some of the most glittering, lyrical and surprising orchestral soundscapes of the 20th Century.
Szymanowski's sensual and romantic orchestral song cycles, performed by Polish soprano Olga Pasichnyk, are presented alongside works which demonstrate the range of Lutoslawski's unique musical response to European modernism, demonstrated in his Symphony No. 4, from the 1990s, and virtuosic symphonic study, the Concerto for Orchestra, from 1954.
