WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chamber Sunday

Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chamber Sunday

21 January 2018 at 3:00pm

Mozart: Quintet No 1 in B-flat, K174
Beethoven: Septet in E-flat, Op 20

Benjamin Marquise Gilmore: violin; Marcus Barcham Stevens: violin; Jane Atkins: viola Felix Tanner: viola; Philip Higham: cello; Nikita Naumov: double bass; Maximiliano Martín: clarinet; Peter Whelan: bassoon

Fresh, melodious and delightful – it is easy to see why in his lifetime Beethoven’s Septet was probably his most successful piece. You might imagine that having such a huge bestseller on his hands would bring a smile to his famously frowny face. Not so: it irked him that for decades, people who didn’t like his latest music would refer longingly back to it.

No matter! It makes wonderful music for a leisurely Sunday afternoon, especially when paired with Mozart’s first string quintet. For a 17-year old to have created something as sublime as its slow movement is simply awe-inspiring.
