Thomas Dausgaard's third season as chief conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra will be opening with Dausgaard conducting Leonard Bernstein's Songfest alongside the European premiere of Augusta Read Thomas's Brio. Dausgaard also conducts a rare performance of Rued Langgaard Sfærernes Musik (Music of the Spheres) at Glasgow Cathedral. Other highlights include guest conductor Joana Carneiro directing a rare performance of Berlioz’s dramatic symphony Lélio to mark the 150th anniversary of his death, in an all Berlioz programme which also includes Overture: Waverley and La mort de Cléopâtre with soloists Karen Cargill (mezzo-soprano), Sam Furness (tenor), Andrew Tortise (tenor), and Neal Davies (bass).

New music includes the world premiere of David Fennessy’s The Ground, and the UK premieres of Simon Steen-Andersen’s Piano Concerto and Dai Fujikura’s Impulse – Piano Concerto No.3 [read my interview with Dai]. There are also recent works by Anna Clyne, Julian Anderson, Matthias Pintscher, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Per Nørgård, Sir James MacMillan and Toshio Hosokawa . And just a few weeks after her 90th birthday, there is a special portrait-concert celebrating the music of one of Scotland’s most beloved composers Thea Musgrave.
