BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Volkov conducts Polish Visionaries
City Halls : Grand Hall
Karol Szymanowski and Witold Lutos?awski: two very different visionaries, who between them lit up Poland’s dark 20th century. Lutos?awski’sConcerto for Orchestra brought a modernist energy to the Polish folk tradition; three decades later, his luminous Fourth Symphony reaffirmed his status as one of post-war music’s most compelling voices. Szymanowski, meanwhile, channelled his repressed sensuality into a pair of ravishing song-cycles. Escapism, perhaps, but all the more beautiful for it, so expect a blaze of colour from Ilan Volkov who joins forces with one of Szymanowski’s most admired living interpreters.
