EXTERNAL EVENTS / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: New World Symphony

Tickets are now offsale from this website, but they will be available from the Usher Hall

JS Bach: Orchestral Suite No 4 in D, BWV 1069
Copland: Clarinet Concerto
Dvořák: Symphony No 9 ‘From the New World’

Robin Ticciati: conductor; Maximiliano Martín: clarinet

For his final concert as Principal Conductor, Robin Ticciati turns to the last of Dvořák’s symphonies.  While working in New York, Dvořák encouraged American composers to embrace their own heritage.  Some have heard in the Symphony echoes of spirituals; others have found distinctly Czech fingerprints; one critic has argued for a hidden programme based on Longfellow’s Song of Hiawatha.  Undisputed, however, is the Symphony’s melodic largesse.  It is preceded by Bach’s last orchestral suite, a feast of Baroque colour, and Aaron Copland’s highly engaging Clarinet Concerto – arguably one of the fruits of Dvořák’s mission to nurture a distinctively American style.  

PRE-CONCERT INSIGHTS: Dr Jane Stanley (Lecturer in Music, University of Glasgow) presents American Identities in Dvořák and Copland.
