WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: The Paris Concert

Rameau: Suite from Les Boréades
Mozart: Symphony No 31 in D ‘Paris’
JC Bach: Sinfonia Concertante in E-flat for flute, two clarinets, two horns and bassoon
Haydn: Symphony No 92 in G ‘Oxford’

Laurence Cummings: conductor / harpsichord; SCO Wind Soloists

Have you ever strolled round the streets of Paris and wondered how to spark that creative genius in you? A city that has long been a great source of inspiration to many was the compositional base for all the works in this programme.

The opening of Mozart’s ‘Paris’ is one of the grandest, most thrilling sounds, with Mozart making use of clarinets for the first time in a symphony. Haydn’s ‘Oxford’ was so-called because he conducted it when he was awarded an honorary doctorate at Oxford University – but it was a case of ‘here’s one I wrote earlier’ (in Paris). Rameau and JC Bach will have you searching for your favourite dancing shoes.
