Bach/Stravinsky: Chorale Variations on Vom Himmel hoch da komm' ich her
Bach: Komm, Jesu, komm
Stravinsky: Symphony of Psalms
Stravinsky: Symphonies of Wind Instruments
Ryan Wigglesworth conductor
Don’t miss this rare chance to hear the sublime BBC Singers in Scotland as they pair up with the BBC SSO and new Chief Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth for a heavenly evening of Stravinsky and Bach. 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.
