To end the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's 75th Birthday season, Ilan Volkov conducts Tchaikovsky's magnificent Fifth Symphony. Not popular at its premiere, it has today grown to be one of his most enduring symphonies. The programme starts with Scottish composer Martin Suckling's piece "The Moon, the Moon", based on the ideas and images portrayed in Edward Lear's poem The Owl and the Pussy Cat. And one of the most outstanding pianists in the world today, Nelson Freire, joins the orchestra to play one of the most central works in the piano repertory, Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto
