My friend Hugh Macdonald, the former MD of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, will also be at that Proms concert. He tells me that one of his most cherished memories of his time with the BBC SSO was getting Osmo Vanska to conduct Kullervo both in Glasgow and at the Proms. Apparently Vanska's readings were overwhelmingly powerful. I wish I had been to the Glasgow performance.
