About This Show

Part of the BBC Proms.New Zealand-born conductor Gemma New makes her Proms debut with a colourful programme of 20th and 21st-century orchestral masterworks. The graceful charm of Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 – a birthday gift for the composer’s talented teenage son – meets the dazzling dances and acerbic brilliance of Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird. We move into the present with the European premiere of Canadian composer Samy Moussa’s Symphony No. 2. Prize-winning pianist Pavel Kolesnikov joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
