Listen Here! New World Symphonies – Music from America and Beyond
City Halls

Tickets: Free (limited to 2 per application)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Since the late 1800s the USA has proved to be an inspiration and a refuge for many composers. Aaron Copland and Charles Ives looked to their homeland to forge a new orchestral sound in works such as Appalachian Spring and Three Places in New England. European composers such as Bartók fled to the country never to return while Dvořák's visit at the end of the 19th century provided the impetus for his best known and most loved symphony, the Ninth.

Join the BBC SSO and its Artist-in-Association, Matthias Pintscher, for this very special two-part concert which opens the BBC SSO's 2012 Listen Here! weekend.

The first part of the concert (Ives, Bartók and Dvořák) will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3, presented by Jamie MacDougall.
