Scottish Chamber Orchestra: The Little C Major

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

Beethoven: Overture, Prometheus
Dussek: Piano Concerto in G minor Op 49
Schubert: Symphony No 6 ‘Little C major’

Richard Egarr - Conductor/Fortepiano

Between classics by Schubert and Beethoven, SCO Associate Artist Richard Egarr introduces one of their contemporaries who deserves to be far better known. Dussek certainly had a colourful life: his brilliance as pianist and composer won him the favour of Catherine the Great of Russia and Napoleon Bonaparte among others. It also won him favours of another kind, and he had to flee several countries with angry husbands on his heels. He left 18 captivating and unusual piano concertos – hugely enjoyable to listen to, and fascinating for us looking back to that time because, in them, you can so clearly hear the future – the piano styles of Liszt, Chopin and Schumann.

Pre-Concert Talk, 6.30pm Richard Egarr talks about Jan Ladislav Dussek and his contemporaries (free to ticket holders)
