Hear and Now - Scottish Inspirations
City Halls

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Martin Roscoe piano
Thomas Dausgaard conductor

An evening of new music with the BBC SSO, all with Scottish connections…

Sally Beamish’s new piano concerto is inspired by her family and the famous whirlpool at Corryvreckan; here it is premiered by its dedicatee, Martin Roscoe. Helen Grime, meanwhile, finds inspiration in a painting by Joan Eardley while Jay Capperauld’s Fčin-Aithne (a Scots Gaelic phrase that translates as ‘self-knowledge’) explores identity in modern-day Scotland.

The concert ends with the Scottish Premiere of the late Peter Maxwell Davies’s Ninth Symphony, a single movement work which makes use of an off-stage brass sextet to both ambiguously celebrate and question military music. The Symphony was hailed at its premiere as a “brilliantly crafted work” (The Sunday Times) and “indisputably one of Maxwell Davies’s most engaged orchestral works” (The Guardian). The orchestra’s new Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard conducts.

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

(Catterline in Winter, Helen Grime’s first Eardley Picture, will be performed by the BBC SSO on Thursday 22 September 2016)
