Hear and Now: Gloria Coates with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

About Hear and Now: Gloria Coates with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Born in Wisconsin, but resident in Europe since the late 1960s, Gloria Coates has been a leading figure in American composition since her work, 'Music on Open Strings' (later retitled 'Symphony No.1'), caused a sensation at the Warsaw Autumn Festival in the 1970s. Sometimes described as a post-minimalist, her works are characterised by her use of tone clusters, glissandos and chorales. As well as being a composer, she is an abstract-expressionist painter and her oeuvre includes symphonies, chamber works and song.

In this concert, the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor, Ilan Volkov, directs the World Premiere of 'Symphony No.11' (revised version for full orchestra) and the UK Premieres of 'Symphony No.1' and 'Symphony No.7', all three of which serve as both a musical portrait of an outstanding artist and, for some, an introduction to a unique musical voice.

'Hear and Now' concerts are FREE but limited to two tickets per application - tickets for this concert are available from Monday 8 October 2018. Venue booking fees may apply. Seating is unreserved.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast in BBC Radio 3's 'Hear and Now' series.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hear and Now: Gloria Coates with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
