Ivan Hewett presents the second of two concerts by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and their Artist-in-Association Matthias Pintscher at the 2012 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Two recent works, by Pintscher himself and Dai Fujikura - the UK premiere of a piece written for Gustavo Dudamel and his Venezuelan Simon Bolivar orchestra - are complemented by two contemporary classics: a concertante work with solo accordion by Norwegian composer Arne Nordheim, who died in 2010, and one of Luigi Nono's greatest explorations of the border between sound and silence. Plus, during the interval, another UK premiere - from featured composer at the festival, Irishman Donnacha Dennehy.
