EVENTS ELSEWHERE / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Emmanuel Krivine conducts Schumann
Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Schubert: Symphony No 5
Mendelssohn: Piano Concerto No 1 in G minor
Schumann: Symphony No 3 ‘Rhenish’
Emmanuel Krivine: conductor; Bertrand Chamayou: piano
Inspired in part by a visit to the recently completed cathedral in Cologne, Schumann’s ‘Rhenish’ combines the energy of Beethoven (the ‘Eroica’ and ‘Pastoral’ Symphonies are clearly among its influences) with Schumann’s own highly lyrical gift.
By contrast, Mozart is a constant presence in Schubert’s Fifth Symphony. In 1816 (the year of the Symphony’s composition) Schubert confided to his diary, “O Mozart, immortal Mozart, how many, oh how endlessly many such comforting perceptions of a brighter and better life hast thou brought to our souls!”
PLEASE NOTE: This event takes place at the Usher Hall, Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH1 2EA.
