Celebrating the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (1/4)

Bernstein, Bloch and Mahler - music inspired by Judaism - performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Thomas Dausgaard. Presented by Hannah French.

This afternoon's complete concert brings together three composers with an influence of Jewish music alongside the renowned Klezmer band, She'Koyokh. It includes Bernstein's Candide Overture and a rare chance to hear Schelomo, the 'Hebrew rhapsody' by Ernest Bloch in which the orchestra is joined by cellist Jian Wang. Mahler's First Symphony is preceded by a performance of Jewish klezmer folk music to explore what resonances emerge.
Presented by Hannah French.
