BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Nicola Benedetti plays Szymanowski
City Halls : Grand Hall
They called them “Young Poland”: the composers who, in the first decades of the 20th century, gave voice to a resurgent nation. Kar?owicz died young, but his heartfelt tone-poem Eternal Songsght Polish music firmly into the world of Mahler and Strauss. Szymanowski went further in his Violin Concerto No.1: lyrical, visionary and aglow with colour, it’s a work with which Nicola Benedetti has a deep personal affinity. Andrew Litton makes a welcome return to the BBC SSO, and reminds us of another turning point in Eastern European history: Prokofiev’s “symphony of the greatness of the human spirit”, premiered in wartime Moscow to the sound of gunfire.
