Sally Beamish: Whitescape @ Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow
Nov 22 @ 1:00 pm

Stravinsky Concerto in E Flat Major Dumbarton Oaks
Beamish Whitescape
Beethoven Symphony No7

Something old, something new, something borrowed…Stravinsky’s zesty homage to the 18th century gets this year’s series of lunchtime musical feasts off to a mouth-watering start. And when the young New Zealand-born conductor Gemma New unleashes Beethoven’s volcanic Seventh Symphony in the intimate surroundings of the New Auditorium – well, let’s just say that it should certainly recharge your batteries! First, though, something from Scotland. Sally Beamish’s Frankenstein-inspired Whitescape tells a tale of ice, fog and mystery…

New Work, World Premiere (c. 12’)
BEETHOVEN
Symphony No 1 (26’)
MACMILLAN
Í: A Meditation on Iona (16’)
BEETHOVEN
Symphony No 2 (34’)

This is a very Swensen concert, sure to have those hallmark qualities that inspire critical reactions such as thrilling and ecstatic”, and “some of the keenest and most explosive performances from the SCO”.  To have him direct the first two Beethoven symphonies is a rare treat. Great music, of course, but also a fascinating snapshot of Beethoven’s amazing evolution in his early 30s. Twenty years after conducting the premiere, Swensen returns to James MacMillan’s atmospheric Í : a musical evocation of Iona, a place of wild seas, stark beauty and spirituality. Opening the evening is a new voice for SCO audiences as award-winning Tom Harrold writes his first piece for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
