BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Osborne plays Beethoven Piano concerto No.4
City Halls : Grand Hall
No British composer was better equipped to write a ‘pastoral’ symphony than Ralph Vaughan Williams – or so you’d think. But Vaughan Williams’s Third was conceived to the sound of a bugle call on the Western Front, and its haunted fields are those of Flanders, not Gloucestershire. Associate Guest Conductor Andrew Manze reaches the next landmark in his Vaughan Williams cycle, and introduces Grazyna Bacewicz’s bracing Concerto for String Orchestra of 1948, a burst of neo-classical energy from a troubled era. Beethoven ties the two together: Steven Osborne’s profound musical intelligence should uncover new depths as he embarks on a cycle of the composer’s piano concertos, beginning with the most personal – and enigmatic – of the works
