On October 6th, 2012, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are giving a free concert at The City Halls, Candleriggs, Glasgow.
It’s called: “Hear And Now: Saariaho – Adriana Songs” and here’s a wee bit about it from the SSO’s website:
“Marking Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho’s 60th birthday, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra presents the UK Premiere of her song cycle, Adriana Songs. Derived from music written for her operatic heroine, the songs confront the personal horrors of war through haunting music of barely contained violence and great imagination.”
Here is the promotional flyer for the concert:
– No, really, that’s the actual flyer!
I know what you’re thinking and the answer is:
OF COURSE I BLOODY DID!
