BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra performs Britten’s Violin Concerto with James Ehnes, Dvorak’s Cello Concerto with Nicolas Altstaedt, and Richard Rodney Bennett's Symphony No 1.

A week of performances from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Today James Ehnes joins the orchestra for Britten’s Violin Concerto; plus Dvorak’s Cello Concerto with Nicolas Altstaedt; Eduard Lassen's Violin Concerto with Linus Roth & Richard Rodney Bennett's 1st Symphony

The Romantic passions of these symphonic works are contrasted with the sparkling wit and infectious energy of a couple of excerpts from Rossini operas with mezzo-soprano Victoria Simmonds.
