Samy Moussa - Elysium (UK premiere)

Shostakovich - Violin Concerto No1

Adams - Harmonielehre

Kevin John Edusei - conductor

María Dueñas - Violin

Members of the BBC Scottish Symphony and Royal Scottish National Orchestras

Orchestras assemble! Join the RSNO and BBC SSO as we combine forces to mark the 2022 Association of British Orchestras Conference in Glasgow. María Dueñas is the youthful soloist in Shostakovich’s Soviet thriller of a Violin Concerto and there’s a UK premiere, too, from Canadian composer Samy Moussa. Then get ready for blast-off as our double-orchestra brings John Adams’ high-octane masterpiece to vivid life, inspired by his dream of an oil tanker sailing into the San Francisco sky.

This concert is presented in association with the Association of British Orchestras. It will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and BBC Sounds.
