Festival: BBC Proms

In his 13 symphonic poems Liszt transformed the concert overture into something urgently new. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Principal Guest Conductor Ilan Volkov here perform two of the last in the series – the mercurial Hamlet, a study of Shakespeare’s tragic hero, and From the Cradle to the Grave, one of Liszt’s most experimental works. They sit alongside Mussorgsky’s much-loved Pictures at an Exhibition and the world premiere of a new piano concerto by Julian Anderson, which offers a tour around ‘an imaginary museum’ of contrasting worlds and sensations.  

Tickets £7.50 - £40.
