Hear and Now: Saariaho - Adriana Songs

City Halls
Glasgow
Scotland

Ivan Hewett presenter
Patricia Bardon mezzo-soprano*
Matthias Pintscher conductor
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Marking Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho's 60th birthday, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra presents the UK Premiere of her song cycle, Adriana Songs. Derived from music written for her operatic heroine, the songs confront the personal horrors of war through haunting music of barely contained violence and great imagination.

The concert also includes music from her compatriot Magnus Lindberg, praised by the New York Times for its ‘wondrous sounds' and Johannes Maria Staud's response to the Polish writer and artist Bruno Schultz. Matthias Pintscher, the BBC SSO's Artist-in-Association, conducts.
