While the Great War raged across Europe, the Danish composer Rued Langgaard gazed into the infinite. 'Music of the Spheres' was the result: a vast, luminous musical starscape that uses huge orchestral and choral forces to literally surround the audience with sound. Thomas Dausgaard is passionate about it, and when he conducted it at the 2010 BBC Proms it caused a sensation. This performance in the atmospheric acoustic of Glasgow Cathedral is a rare chance for Scotland to hear a true lost masterpiece. First, though, the award-winning young British soprano Rowan Pierce presents a bouquet of Strauss songs, and Dausgaard conducts Haydn’s exuberant 'Symphony No.99' – a universe in a grain of sand.
The concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 - presented by Kate Molleson.
