WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Schubert Symphony 'Tragic'

Stravinsky: Pulcinella Suite
Cresswell: Llanto: Clarinet Concerto (SCO Commission: World Premiere)
Schubert: Symphony No 4 in C minor ‘Tragic’

Clemens Schuldt: conductor; Maximiliano Martín: clarinet

Charismatic and compelling on stage, SCO Principal Clarinet Maximiliano Martín is a superb concerto soloist. Here, he premieres Llanto (‘Lament’), written especially for him by Lyell Cresswell whose own track record with concertos is formidable – including a commission for the BBC Proms. The drama of pitching soloist against orchestra inspires him to compose powerfully dramatic music. Award-winning young conductor Clemens Schuldt gives us playful (Stravinsky at his most hilarious) and ‘tragic’ – though Schubert’s Symphony has many more upbeat than sombre moments.

COMPOSER INSIGHTS: 6.30pm Lyell Cresswell and Professor William Sweeney from the University of Glasgow discuss writing for the clarinet.
