WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Goerne sings Schubert
at The Queen's Hall
Bach (arr. Webern): Ricercar from The Musical Offering
Schubert: Songs with orchestra
Mahler: Adagietto from Symphony No 5
Schubert: Symphony No 5
Robin Ticciati: Conductor; Matthias Goerne: Baritone
To get the utmost out of Robin Ticciati’s concerts this week and next, try to come to them both. As ever he is thoughtful and deep, taking the SCO into new realms. Across both concerts there is a sense of continuity and tradition with Vienna at its heart: the magnificent, musical city that was home to so many of these composers. Mahler loved Schubert, and Ticciati pairs their Fifth Symphonies. Webern pays tribute to Bach and Matthias Goerne, one of today’s finest exponents of lieder, performs Schubert songs orchestrated by Webern, Brahms and Reger.
