Robert Worby with music from Tectonics Festival Glasgow 2015, including new orchestral music by Christopher Fox and harpist Rhodri Davies. Plus Hild Sofie Tafjord and Daniel Padden.

Robert Worby presents the final instalment of recordings from this year's Tectonics Glasgow, the festival co-curated by Ilan Volkov and Alasdair Campbell, and presented in association with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The event takes place at Glasgow's City Halls and in tonight's programme we hear two site-specific works written specially for the venue: Mural by the Norwegian French horn player and composer Hild Sofie Tafjord, and Glass Hundreds by Daniel Padden of the One Ensemble and Volcano the Bear. Orchestral music includes the UK premiere of Enno Poppe's Altbau and the world premiere of a work co-composed by harpist Rhodri Davies and Christopher Fox, Topophony. Plus improvised music from saxophonist Peter Brotzmann in collaboration with experimental slide guitarist Heather Leigh.
