Shankar Plays Shankar

Usher Hall

Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Kristjan Järvi Conductor
Anoushka Shankar Sitar

From the Beatles to the world’s greatest orchestras, Ravi Shankar was an artist who brought worlds together. His daughter Anoushka joins the RSNO for a rare performance of his ravishing Raga-Mala. It’s exactly the sort of vibrant musical discovery we’ve come to expect from Kristjan Järvi – but you haven’t heard the half of it, as Järvi introduces two hauntingly beautiful modern classics by Arvo Pärt. Instantly familiar from TV and film soundtracks, they’re even lovelier when performed live.
