What's On / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Sinfonia Concertante

Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Sinfonia Concertante

11 April 2013 at 7:30pm
at The Queen's Hall

Strauss: Sextet from Capriccio
Haydn: Sinfonia Concertante
Webern: Five Pieces Op 5
Beethoven: Symphony No 2

Alexander Janiczek: Violin/Director; David Watkin: Cello; Robin Williams: Oboe; Peter Whelan: Bassoon

In the enviable position of writing most of his music for musicians that he knew well, Haydn peppered his work with wonderful solos – his Sinfonia Concertante is awash in them, offering select principals of the SCO a chance to shine. Janiczek has built a fascinating programme around it, with two short pieces from the 20th century; Strauss’ moonlit sextet is as expansive as Webern’s Five Pieces are tiny and dense. To close, a grand finale: the second symphony of Haydn’s own troublesome pupil.
