EXTERNAL EVENTS / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Violin Concerto

Changes to concert at Usher Hall

We are sorry to let you know that both Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati and soloist Christian Tetzlaff have had to withdraw from this concert. We realise how disappointing this will be for everyone. It has proved to be a very difficult Concert Season for Robin Ticciati as a result of his enduring rehabilitation of his spine, following a back injury in 2016. Christian Tetzlaff’s withdrawal is due to entirely unrelated reasons.

We are pleased to be able to present the programme as originally billed.  Taking the podium will be Warner Classics artist Maxim Emelyanychev and the exciting Czech violinist Josef Špacek will be the soloist.

Robin Ticciati’s final Winter Season concert as SCO Principal Conductor is at the Usher Hall on 22 March 2018. The programme includes Copland’s Clarinet Concerto with Maximiliano Martín and Dvorák’s ‘New World’ Symphony.

Schubert’s ‘Great’ C major Symphony, completed shortly before the composer’s untimely death, was his final contribution to the genre.  Conceived on the broadest scale – Schumann praised its ‘heavenly lengths’ – the Symphony combines the monumental with the intensely lyrical – a reflection perhaps of the main strands in mature Schubert. Dvorák’s Violin Concerto was written for the greatest nineteenth-century violinist, Joseph Joachim.  For some reason Joachim never performed it publically.  However, the work is an appealing amalgam of traditional concerto style and Czech colouring and, it should persuade all of its place in the repertoire.
