Benedetti Plays Mozart
Saturday 26 April 2014 - 7.30pm
Scottish Chamber Orchestra
BEETHOVEN Overture, Egmont
MOZART Violin Concerto No 5 in A ‘Turkish’
BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4
Jérémie Rhorer Conductor
Nicola Benedetti Violin
Brilliant, tuneful, rhythmic, exotic – that’s what ‘Turkish’ meant to Mozart, and his violin concerto is a joyous showstopper for Scotland’s favourite violinist. Jérémie Rhorer is a formidable conductor who has been building a terrific career in Europe, especially in the opera house. Egmont’s fiery blast will be special – a perfect complement to the softer loveliness of the fourth symphony.
Pre-concert Talk 6.45pm (free to ticket holders) Nicola Benedetti talks about the music in tonight’s programme.
