The Lark Ascending & Vaughan Williams Symphonies
City Halls

Tickets: £10.00-£23.00
Jennifer Pike violin
Andrew Manze conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Continuing his exploration of Vaughan
Williams' symphonies, Andrew Manze
brings the BBC SSO's Thursday Night Series to an inspiring close with this extraordinary
programme that places arguably the two greatest symphonies together. A starker contrast could
hardly be imagined between the warmly sunlit, mystical lyricism of the Fifth and its predecessor,
the angular, turbulent, disturbing Fourth. Between them, all is pastoral balm, with the lark's
exquisite song rising higher and higher over a peaceful English landscape. Outstanding young
violinist Jennifer Pike is the voice of the songbird, and she begins the concert alone, with some
of the greatest violin music by Vaughan Williams's musical love, JS Bach.

J.S Bach : Sonata for unaccompanied violin
Vaughan Williams : Symphony No 4
Vaughan Williams : The Lark Ascending
Vaughan Williams : Symphony No 5

Scottish Ensemble with Jonathan Morton, violin
Queens Hall
0131 668 2019

Tickets: £10
Scottish Ensemble with Jonathan
Morton, violin

A unique programme starting in 1969 and going back in time continuously, finishing with Bach.
This unusual journey into the past will confound your expectations and, we hope, raise stimulating
questions about our musical preconceptions. The concert includes a new arrangement of Claude
Debussy’s exotic string quartet.

Gyorgy Ligeti : Ramifications
Anton Webern : Five Movements for String Orchestra Op.5
Claude Debussy : String Quartet in G minor, Op.10 (arr. Morton)
Anton Bruckner : Adagio from String Quintet in F major
Felix Mendelssohn : Sinfonia No.10 in B minor
J.S Bach : Violin Concerto in E major

Hear and Now: Composer Focus: Richard Ayres
City Halls

Tickets: Free
Greg Lawson violin*
Fraser Fifield pipes*
Catriona Mckay harp*
Saar Berger horn**
Ilan Volkov conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Welcome to the world of Richard Ayres. Described as "zany and anarchic", his is an energetic,
layered, and often wildly humorous musical universe. This concert features one of his infamous
NONcertos where the soloist is an "outcast" often called upon to perform impossible musical
feats. Saar Berger, horn player with the Ensemble Modern, should rise (or fall) to the
challenge beautifully.
The other composers in the concert are no less interesting. Serbian-German composer Marko
Nikodijevic draws upon on the diverse worlds of the drug-fuelled techno music scene and
Serbian folk songs for GHB /tanzaggregat, while English minimalist Laurence Crane has been
dubbed "irresistibly droll" by Gramophone magazine.
This concert is also the closing event of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland's PLUG festival

Richard Ayres : No.9 MacGOWAN
Richard Ayres : No.36 (2002) NONcerto for horn
Marko Nikodijevic : GHB/tanzaggregat
Laurence Crane : West Sussex Folk Material
