BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Scott of the Antarctic 

Music by Vaughan Williams

Elizabeth Watts, soprano

Women of the Glasgow Chamber Choir

Martyn Brabbins, conductor

Scott of the Antarctic (1948) is justly famous for its score by Ralph Vaughan Williams who later turned elements into his Seventh Symphony. Richly imaginative, the music captures the barren beauty of the Antarctic with icy writing for the strings, penguin-centred escapades for the brass, and an eerie, other-worldly sequence for women’s chorus and soprano. Marking 150 years since the composer’s birth, Martyn Brabbins conducts Vaughan Williams’s extraordinary masterpiece, a cinematic experience that’ll give you chills – in every sense.

Scott of the Antarctic Live in Concert is presented by Big Screen Live in association with StudioCanal and generous funds provided by the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust.
