EVENTS ELSEWHERE / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Robin Ticciati conducts Beethoven
Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Widmann: Con Brio
Brahms: Double Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No 7
Robin Ticciati: conductor; Christian Tetzlaff: violin; Tanja Tetzlaff: cello
Brahms’ Double Concerto, with its signature melodies and grand sweeping phrases, delights audiences the world over. It requires soloists who are at the top of their game, and you can’t get much better than the brother-sister Tetzlaff duo sharing the limelight. One of Germany’s most sought-after composers, Jörg Widmann, designed his virtuosic Con Brio to acknowledge the brilliance of Beethoven’s Seventh and Eighth Symphonies.
Since it was chosen as the backdrop to Colin Firth’s dramatic address in The King’s Speech, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony has become one of his most recognised and popular pieces, in particular the expressive, slow second movement, the Allegretto. Be prepared to feel uplifted.
PLEASE NOTE: This event takes place at the Usher Hall, Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH1 2EA.
