The Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Joseph Swensen and Amy Dickson perform Sibelius, MacMillan, Glazunov and Beethoven

Joseph Swensen conducts the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in a programme of Sibelius, Glazunov and Beethoven. Amy Dickson performs a world premiere for saxophone by James MacMillan.

From the City Halls in Glasgow, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra is joined by Conductor Emeritus Joseph Swensen for a varied concert programme featuring Sibelius, Beethoven and a double-bill of saxophone concertos written over eighty years apart. Amy Dickson joins the ensemble to perform Glazunov's Saxophone concerto in the second half of the concert. In the first half she plays a new concerto from composer James MacMillan, jointly commissioned by Perth Concert Hall, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the Aurora Orchestra.

Presented by Tom Redmond.
