Blog

In our latest playlist, listen to some classical music highlights from this year's Usher Hall programme.

This week's playlist takes you through some of the works you'll hear at the Usher Hall this August. From the London Symphony Orchestra's take on John Adams' Harmonielehre to the Los Angeles Philharmonic playing Mahler's unforgettable Resurrection Symphony, and even Joana Carneiro conducting Sir James MacMillan's riotous A Scotch Bestiary with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Usher Hall will play host to some of the world's greatest orchestras, soloists and ensembles at the International Festival next month.
