BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra plays a concert that one minute startles and the next charms. The Invitation to the Dance theme that runs through the orchestra's season continues with Bartok's scandalous Miraculous Mandarin Suite. Olli Mustonen then joins the BBC SSO in Bartok's finger-breaking and most popular piano concerto. In the second half, we hear Hindemith's Funeral Music for King George V, played by the Orchestra's wonderful principal viola Scott Dickinson. Then, originally intended as a ballet, Hindemith's showstopper for a wartime American audience, his symphonic reworkings of themes by Weber.
