BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra marks its 80th birthday with three different views of, and about, life.
Matthias Pintscher brings a composer's empathy and conducts the UK premiere of his own beautiful Idyll: a musical journey towards the light, written in memory of a friend.
Mozart's Oboe Concerto spreads the joy of youth and life-affirming sunshine and is performed by one of the greats of the oboe.
Often considered Mahler's last symphony, his "Song of the Earth" was written in 1909 just a little after he was forced to resign from the Vienna Court Opera. His eldest daughter had died and he himself was diagnosed with a heart defect - "With one stroke I have lost everything". His vision of earthly beauty and transience was completed just two years before his own death.
