Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Maxim's Eroica
7.30pm. Doors open at 6.45pm
Join the birthday celebrations! Maxim Emelyanychev sets out for an unforgettable evening of joy and passion as he leads the Scottish Chamber Orchestra on a very special 50th anniversary tour of the nation – in some of the biggest-hearted, most compelling music around.
The SCO’s Principal Clarinettist Maximiliano Martín joins Principal Violist Max Mandel in Max Bruch’s tender, intimate Double Concerto, written for his clarinettist son – and every bit as richly Romantic as the composer’s famed Violin Concerto No. 1.
Beethoven’s majestic ‘Eroica’ Symphony brings the festivities to a rousing, soul-lifting conclusion, while SCO Associate Composer Jay Capperauld – one of Scotland’s most exciting and original voices – unveils a kaleidoscopic new piece written specially for the Grand Tour.
