BBC SSO Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard brings two voices from his native Denmark to City Halls for this Hear and Now, including Nørgård’s Seventh Symphony of which he gave the world premiere. The composer’s no-holds-barred approach is still evident in this work from 2006, scored in part for 14 tom-toms, and it’s presented here with an equally intense and innovative work by Simon Steen-Andersen. This piano concerto, which uses pre-recorded audio-visual material, takes as its starting point the sound and video recording of a grand piano falling onto a concrete floor from a height of 8 metres. The result is a spectacular, genre-bending multimedia experience. Nicolas Hodges is the soloist. And the concert opens with a new work by Glasgow-based composer David Fennessy, the latest in the orchestra’s Scottish Inspirations commissions that reflect and are inspired by Scottish culture.
