WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Appalachian Spring

Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus
Vasks: Viola Concerto Scottish Premiere
Respighi: Gli Uccelli
Copland: Appalachian Spring

Olari Elts: conductor; Maxim Rysanov: viola

Birdsong is rife in the natural world of this delightful programme. Finn Einojuhani Rautavaara matches recordings of the Arctic’s avian inhabitants with orchestral imitations; Respighi’s birds are adapted from pretty numbers by 17th and 18th century composers. The well-known tune in Copland’s sweet and earthy Appalachian ballet is a Shaker spiritual, Simple Gifts – exemplified by the American composer in this work. One of the world’s most original soloists, Maxim Rysanov, joins the SCO and Estonian Olari Elts in the Viola Concerto by the conductor’s Latvian neighbour Pēteris Vasks.

CONNECT INSIGHTS: 6.30pm Songs of the Arctic – with SCO Principal Flute Alison Mitchell and the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Especially designed for 11-13 year olds, all welcome!
