About Zappa, Anderson and Ives with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
“You’ll not get a wild heroic ride to heaven on pretty little sounds”. That’s what Charles Ives’s father told him, and there isn’t a piece in this concert that makes the smallest compromise in its determination to peel back your preconceptions and redefine your ideas about how an orchestra can sound.
Frank Zappa meets Pierre Boulez on the 1980s New York underground, and Julian Anderson opens his “imaginary museum”, as pianist Steven Osborne brings a dazzling new piano concerto to Scotland.
And then Ives throws everything he has at an anarchic, ecstatic celebration of his New England boyhood – motto: “All the wrong notes are right”. It could have been written for Ilan Volkov.
Prelude: 6.45pm in the Recital Room
Professor Peter Nelson, from the University of Edinburgh, introduces the concert.
