Peter Oundjian (conductor)

Royal Scottish National Orchestra

Time to celebrate! Glinka's Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla has been called a musical firecracker – so what better way to launch Peter Oundjian's very first concert as RSNO Music Director? That's just the start of this thrilling all-Russian programme, which sweeps from the heart-melting song of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto – played by the superb Vadim Gluzman – to the revolutionary fervour of Shostakovich's mighty Eleventh Symphony. Be there, as we raise a glass to a very special night for Scottish music.

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.

Magnus Lindberg : Souvenir for ensemble (2010)
Kaija Saariaho : Adriana Songs (2006)
Johannes Maria Staud : On Comparative Meteorology (rev. 2010)
