Monday - BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Georgia Mann presents recent concert performances given by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, including Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Georgia Mann presents concert performances by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. In our 2pm concert, Thomas Dausgaard conducts the orchestra and Royal Conservatoire Voices in a concert featuring music by Palestrina, Mozart and Gluck, as well as Handel's choral masterpiece, Zadok the Priest, and Beethoven's Symphony No.9. Later, Martyn Brabbins and the orchestra showcase two works reflecting the diverse and distinctive nature of 20th-century British orchestral music around the time of the Second World War: Roger Sacheverell Coke's Piano Concerto No.3, brings to mind the emotional appeal of Rachmaninov, Delius and Percy Grainger, while Michael Tippett's driven and exuberant First Symphony, draws inspiration from the music of Henry Purcell.
