BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra: Mahler Symphony No. 5

3:00pm, Sunday 29 September 2019

Thomas Dausgaard

A lone trumpet sounds in the darkness and Gustav Mahler begins his great symphonic struggle from tragedy to triumph – by way of midnight storms, joyous horn-calls, and arguably the most tender love-letter ever written without words: the rapturous Adagietto. In this opening concert of the new BBC SSO season, Thomas Dausgaard brings both his unequalled command of symphonic structure, and his profound feeling for late romanticism. Bruch’s much-loved Violin Concerto comes from the same world of solitary wanderers and distant horn-calls, and it’s perfect for what one critic has called the “lovely freedom and sense of fantasy” of Henning Kraggerud – a violinist who has something fresh to say in even the most familiar music. And to begin, another deeply-felt journey into time and emotion from Japan’s pre-eminent living composer Toshio Hokosawa. ‘Preludio’ is an orchestral nocturne haunted by memories and shadows, written by a composer with a ravishing sonic imagination who just happens to have been born in Hiroshima.
