BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo conductor
Colin Currie percussion

Chief conductor Sakari Oramo leads the ascent of two great orchestral mountains by Hovhaness and Strauss, which frame a delightful new percussion concerto.

Mysterious Mountain is one of Alan Hovhaness's best-loved works, a symphony of spiritual transcendence and the perfect foil to Strauss's grandly ambitious alpine adventure. Dubbed 'the world's finest and most daring percussionist' Colin Currie is the dedicatee of Switch, a new work from the exciting young American composer Andrew Norman.

Alan Hovhaness : Symphony No 2, Mysterious Mountain
Andrew Norman : Switch
