Lucas and Arthur Jussen, the two Dutch brothers, barely in their early twenties, come to Glasgow with Mozart's concerto for two pianos. And then enter the living, breathing world of Michael Tippett's Fourth Symphony; a whole lifetime, from birth to death, expressed in music that seems to evolve and grow before your very ears. Martyn Brabbins brings all his mastery and insight to a modern British masterpiece that demands to be heard.
