Afternoon Performance - MacMillan Conducts MacMillan
City Halls
Glasgow
Scotland

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Annelien Van Wauwe clarinet (BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist)
James MacMillan conductor

Sir James MacMillan isn’t just one of the most significant artists working in Scotland today: he’s a creative figure of international importance. Any premiere by MacMillan is a major occasion, but his Fourth Symphony takes the Scottish renaissance composer Robert Carver as a starting point for a musical journey of far-reaching power and beauty. “MacMillan’s new symphony holds a candle to Mahler” wrote The Arts Desk of the world premiere in 2015; in this first Scottish performance, MacMillan himself conducts – and shares the stage with young Dutch clarinet star Annelien Van Wauwe in Finzi’s lovely concerto, and the cosmic vision of an elder statesman amongst Scottish composers, John Maxwell Geddes who celebrates his 75th birthday this year.

Hear and Now - Matthias Pintscher Conducts….
City Halls
Glasgow
Scotland

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Matthias Pintscher conductor

Matthias Pintscher, the BBC SSO’s Artist-In-Association, curates another evening of works, all originally commissioned for one anniversary or another. Ligeti’s frantic, scuttling culmination of his explorations into musical polyphony was written for the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra’s 60th birthday. Hans Werner Henze’s Seventh Symphony commemorated the Berlin Philharmonic’s centenary and references Beethovenian symphonic form, German dances and the poetry of Friedrich Hölderlin. Olga Neuwirth’s recent work, meanwhile, began as a tribute Mahler to mark the centenary of his death but is inspired by memories of her grandfather’s life by the Danube and is, in her own words, “an impossible attempt to stop time by composing”.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
