From City Halls in Glasgow, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are joined by Peruvian conductor Migual Harth-Bedoya to perform music inspired by the spirit of the dance, in Spanish composer JoaquĆ­n Turina's Danzas Fantasticas and Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.
The jazz inflections of Leonard Bernstein's Romeo and Juliet musical also resonate through the thoroughly French work of Ravel, in his Piano Concerto in G, performed by the Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter. And the concert concludes with a Roman carnival as reimagined by Tchaikovsky in his Capriccio Italien.
