This time he leads the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in works by Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, Ulysses Kay, and Margaret Bonds. In this look Behind the Playlist, Gray discusses the unique qualities that each of these composers bring to their work, and just how much more we might be missing. Plus, why expanding the repertoire involves so much more than programming.
