BBC SSO 2017/18: Runnicles Conducts 'Symphonie Fantastique'

The Glasgow Series 2017/18

Nothing in music quite compares to the

sensational, opium-fuelled spectacular that is

Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique. Born from

unrequited desire, and sweeping from pastoral

love-scenes to a witches’ Sabbath, it continues to

dazzle the ear. Donald Runnicles, the BBC SSO’s

Conductor Emeritus, is a master of musical drama;

he won’t hold back, any more than he’ll ignore

the darkness that swirls beneath the sumptuous

surface of Ravel’s La Valse. And he rejoins Scottish

pianist Steven Osborne in Beethoven’s most personal

– and poetic – piano concerto: music that asks as

many questions as it answers.

Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room

Peter Nelson, from the University of Edinburgh,

introduces the concert.
