WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chamber Sunday

Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chamber Sunday

19 November 2017 at 3:00pm

R Strauss: Serenade Op 7 in E-flat, Op 7
Janáček: Mladi
R Strauss: Sonatina No 1 in F for 16 wind instruments

Gordon Bragg: conductor; SCO Wind Soloists; RCS Stevenson Winds

There is no more glowing, luxurious sound in all music than Richard Strauss’ writing for winds. Young musicians from the RCS join the SCO’s own players for two rarely heard treats. Just 18 when he wrote his Serenade, Strauss was 79 when he wrote the Sonatina, channelling a lifetime of opera and orchestral music into a rapturous outpouring of wonderful sound. If you love pieces like Der Rosenkavalier, you will love this.

A theme of ‘youth and experience’ runs through Janáček’s sparky Mladi, too. The title means ‘youth’ and sees the 70-year old composer reminiscing about his schooldays in buoyant mood.
