Ryan Wigglesworth: Conductor

The sublime BBC Singers return to Glasgow for the first of two concerts this season which explore the connection between Bach and Stravinsky. It might seem odd for a 20th century provocateur and the master of Baroque music to be bedfellows, but the joyous Magnificat was written to startle and surprise, just as Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments has a serious, Bach-like sense of form and purpose. There’s real magic, too, when both composers come together in the glorious Chorale Variations, and the BBC Singers are just the voices to bring the invigorating and divine beauty of the Symphony of Psalms to vivid life. A concert to refresh and revive.
