Chief conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Thomas Dausgaard, explores the music of a composer about whom he is passionate: Rued Langgaard. In a special performance from the atmospheric surroundings of Glasgow Cathedral, the orchestra and choir will surround the audience with a richly spiritual, and at times overtly dramatic, soundscape.

The concert begins in the choir of the cathedral with a performance of Haydn's Symphony No 99, and a selection of passionate songs by Richard Strauss, performed by the Yorkshire-born soprano Rowan Pierce.
