Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Steven Isserlis and the BBC SSO conducted by Donald Runnicles play Debussy and Ravel.
Two great orchestral portraits by Debussy and Ravel - of the ocean and of fin-de-siècle Vienna - begin and end the concert. But between them, two rarities for cello and orchestra - fruits of Steven Isserlis's restless quest to expand the cello repertoire. Most exciting is the 'lost' early Cello Suite by Debussy. Sally Beamish has beautifully orchestrated the two surviving movements and arranged three other pieces to sit alongside them, making a substantial 'new' work.
