WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: MacMillan Oboe Concerto
at The Queen's Hall
Stravinsky: Pulcinella: Suite
MacMillan: Oboe Concerto (Scottish premiere)
Mendelssohn: Symphony No 4 ‘Italian’
Thierry Fischer - Conductor
François Leleux - Oboe
“James MacMillan’s new Oboe Concerto is a corker” was The Times’ verdict at its first performance. Even if contemporary music is not really your thing, we urge you not to miss this Scottish premiere given by the sensational François Leleux. Framing it are two perennial favourites with visits to Italy in the company of a distinguished Russian and a youthful German.
