Scottish Chamber Orchestra: SINFONIA CONCERTANTE

Scottish Chamber Orchestra: SINFONIA CONCERTANTE

Empire Theatre

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

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 piece 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.
