WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Chaos and Creation

JF Rebel: Les Élémens, symphonie nouvelle
Dvořák: Biblical Songs
Martinů: Rhapsody-Concerto for Viola & Orchestra
Haydn: Symphony No 96 ‘Miracle’

Robin Ticciati: conductor; Karen Cargill: mezzo soprano; Jane Atkins: viola

This concert ranges widely – from Rebel’s Les Élémens, an eighteenth-century work famed for its dramatic evocation of creation, to Martinů’s small-scale concerto – his Viola Rhapsody.

Between them, we hear the Biblical Songs of Dvořák; these exquisite settings of psalm texts, written while the composer was based in New York, stand testament to his lyric genius and profound Christian faith. The concert concludes with Haydn’s Symphony No 96, sometimes known as ‘The Miracle’ after an accident involving a falling chandelier. Recent scholarship, however, suggests the nickname should really be applied to Symphony No 102!
