WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chamber Concert
at The Queen's Hall
Weber: Adagio and Rondo
Mozart: Serenade in E-flat K375
SCO Wind Soloists
“At eleven o’clock at night I was treated to a serenade – and that too of my own composition. These musicians… surprised me, just as I was about to undress, in the most pleasant fashion imaginable with the first chord in E-flat.” So wrote Mozart in 1781. That very Serenade ends this lovely concert, which opens in youthful high spirits with Beethoven’s Sextet. The clarinet is a bit of a scene stealer here – Beethoven gives it plenty of flashes of brilliance.
