Presenting musical events from all over the world. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Yan Pascal Tortelier play Ravel, Beethoven and Berlioz.
You can't always get what you want..
Diaghilev had wanted another ballet from Ravel - instead he composed La Valse, which Diaghilev called a master piece, but not a ballet.
Beethoven wanted a pianist to perform his just finished 4th piano concerto. No one came forward, and Beethoven had to play his most personal and poetic concerto himself. Scottish pianist Steven Osborne plays the music that asks as many questions as it answers.
In the second half, unrequited desire was the muse for this most spectacular of concert works - the sensational, opium-fueled spectacular that is Hector Berlioz's 'Symphonie Fantastique'.
The conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier will bring plenty of French flair to this concert conducting the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra live from City Halls in Glasgow.
