Scottish sunrise and Nordic soul-baring
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard, play music by Maxwell Davies, Sibelius and, with Yulianna Avdeeva, Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No 1.
The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Thomas Dausgaard stir great passion as they render some of the biggest tunes in classical music. Sibelius's deeply personal, and thoroughly melodic Second Symphony ends the concert. Yulianna Avdeeva is the thrilling soloist in Tchaikovsky's most popular piano concerto, his first. And before all that, Scottish folk song abounds in Peter Maxwell Davies's camp classic: An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise.
