BBC SSO 2019/20: Opening Night - Mahler Symphony No.5

City Halls, Glasgow

Season Ticket bookings available from 14/03/19 General Ticket bookings available 29/04/19 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. Here BBC SSO Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard pairs it with Bruch’s much-loved Violin Concerto – an ideal showcase for the “lovely freedom and sense of fantasy” of Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud. And to begin, discover the extraordinary soundworld of Chaya Czernowin. “Can you imagine making your ear into a huge microphone listening to an amalgam of noises like the noises inside one’s body?” she asks. This “large scale miniature” evokes exactly that. Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room Thomas Dausgaard introduces the 2019/20 Season and tonight’s opening concert. Chaya Czernowin Once I blinked nothing was the same (UK Premiere) Bruch Violin Concerto No.1 Mahler Symphony No.5 Henning Kraggerud violin Thomas Dausgaard conductor Concert ends at approx. 9.40pm
