Concert information

Join Stephen Johnson, the BBC SSO and Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard for an introduction to Langgaard’s music, exploring the composer’s unique sound-world through a number of works, including a complete performance of the intensely dramatic and taut Fourth Symphony.

During the interval (c.30 minutes), members of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland will give a short chamber music recital in the Recital Room which will include the ‘Humoreske’ for flute, oboe, cor anglais, clarinet, bassoon and military drum, and ‘Insektarium’, a work for solo piano played by Xiaofen Song (free to ticket-holders – limited seating availability).
