Royal Scottish National Orchestra presents - Sondergard Conducts Rachmaninov One

 SØNDERGÅRD CONDUCTS RACHMANINOV ONE

Sun 14 Oct 2017: 3.00pm
His Majesty’s Theatre

Grieg                    Selected movements from Peer Gynt Suites 1 & 2

Ravel                    Shéhérazade

Rachmaninov     Symphony No1

Thomas Søndergård Conductor

Catriona Morison Mezzo-soprano

 

‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay!’ And taking his cue from those thunderous words, Sergei Rachmaninov launches a First Symphony like no other. Dark, stormy and burning with unrequited passion, it’s heady stuff, and a gripping contrast to Grieg’s much-loved Peer Gynt. The RSNO’s new Music Director Thomas Søndergård is reunited on stage with Scottish mezzo Catriona Morison – fresh from her triumph in 2017’s Cardiff Singer of the World – in Ravel’s exquisite Shéhérazade.

 

Pre Show Talk 2.15pm Ursula Heidecker Allen (RSNO Violin) in conversation with Catriona Morrison
