"BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Bruckner Symphony No 7" @ Perth Concert Hall

Bruckner said it came to him in a dream,
played by an angel – but when Ilan Volkov brings
his searching musical intelligence and emotional
insight to bear on this monumental ‘cathedral in
sound’ the results might well be revelatory. Two
contrasting – but equally inventive – masterpieces

JS Bach’s son Carl Phillip Emmanuel, and the
witty, electrically-charged Violin Concerto that
Stravinsky intended to be unplayable. No fear
on that score from our soloist Carolin Widmann.
