BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard, conductor

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and their Danish-born chief conductor Thomas Dausgaard explore a composer with whom they both have great affinity: Carl Nielsen. The concert opens with Nielsen's Pan and Syrinx -an atmospheric evocation of the titular instrument- and concludes with his deeply expressive 5th Symphony.

Sandwiched between these comes music by a composer revered by Nielsen: Mozart. His popular Clarinet Concerto is performed tonight by Martin Fröst.
