Radio 3 Live in Concert: Elgar and Mozart
Live from City Halls in Glasgow
Donald Runnicles conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in two repertoire favourites.
The first is Elgar’s Cello concerto with Alisa Weilerstein as soloist.
After the interval the National Youth Choir of Scotland joins the orchestra to embark on Mozart’s masterful Requiem. Tonight’s performance is of the newly completed version of the piece by Robert Levin. This revelationary completion strips away layers of alterations that have shrouded the music for centuries to reveal a new perspective on the great work.
With Miah Persson (soprano), Ruxandra Donose (mezzo-soprano), Jeremy Ovenden (tenor) and Neal Davies (bass).
