Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Romantic Century

26 January 2013 at 7:30pm
at The Queen's Hall

Mendelssohn: Trumpet Overture
Schumann: Cello Concerto
Martinsson: A.S. in Memoriam Op 50a
Beethoven: Symphony No 1

Andrew Manze - Conductor
David Watkin - Cello

Now established as an exceptionally fine conductor, Andrew Manze is a musician of great range and curiosity. In this programme, he typically takes a familiar work - in this case Beethoven’s First Symphony - and gives it an intriguing context: Mendelssohn is in very Beethovenian form in the little known overture and Schumann meltingly Romantic in the Cello Concerto. Rolf Martinsson’s reflection on Schoenberg’s ultra-Romantic Verklärte Nacht may last only 10 minutes, but it makes a powerful, memorable impression, paving the way for the youthful blaze of Beethoven’s symphony.
