BBC SSO Musgrave Portrait Concert

  • City Halls, Glasgow, UK (map)

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra mark Musgrave's 90th birthday with a special event showcasing her work. At the centre of the concert is 'Two’s Company', a piece commissioned by the BBC in 2005, which brings together the seemingly incompatible sound worlds of percussion and the oboe for a dialogue that’s by turns frivolous, frustrated and eventually harmonious. The two soloists for whom it was written, Evelyn Glennie and Nicholas Daniel, perform it here. Join them and conductor Jac van Steen to celebrate an artist who, in the words of The Guardian, “communicates on the most immediate level, because it's often so sheerly pleasurable to listen to.” The concert also includes a rare chance to hear a performance of Aaron Copland’s Second Symphony, which dates from the early 1930s, and 'Celebration', an exuberant work by Musgrave's lifelong friend Richard Rodney Bennett (1936-2012).
