BBC SSO - Tippett, Mozart, Vaughan Williams (part 1)
Live from City Halls, Glasgow
Presented by Andrew McGregor
Conductor Andrew Manze brings his passion and insight to the work of composers at the heart of his musical personality: continuing his complete cycle of Vaughan Williams Symphonies, with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. To perform that composer's evocation of a frozen wilderness, his Symphony No. 7 (Sinfonia Antartica), the orchestra are joined by award-winning soprano Katherine Broderick and the Ladies of the Glasgow Chamber Choir.
Music composed by a fellow Briton from a slightly later generation, Michael Tippett, begins the concert. His Divertimento on 'Sellinger's Round' takes as its starting point a tune from Elizabethan England. And the pianist and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Shai Wosner takes to the concert platform to perform one of Mozart's most enduring Piano Concertos.
