John Storgårds Conductor
Lawrence Power Viola
SIBELIUS The Tempest Suite No 2
MILLER Viola Concerto (Scottish Premiere)
TCHAIKOVSKY arr G. MORTON Symphony No 5
Passions, hopes and desires, in a gripping journey from funereal
darkness to blazing glory. Tchaikovsky poured his soul into the Fifth
Symphony, and the result is Romantic music at its most heartfelt.
Powerful Finnish conductor John Storgårds brings this concert to a
thrilling climax with an intimate chamber orchestra arrangement of
Tchaikovsky’s most emotional symphony.
Beforehand, outstanding British viola player Lawrence Power is the
soloist and dedicatee of a new concerto by the remarkable Canadian
composer Cassandra Miller, one of the most exciting, free-thinking
figures in contemporary music.
Sibelius’ rich and potent music for Shakespeare’s stormy final
drama makes a magical opening to the concert.
Co-commissioned by BBC Radio 3, Brussels Philharmonic, National
Arts Centre Orchestra and Scottish Chamber Orchestra, supported by The
Viola Commissioning Circle.
