WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Rautavaara Percussion Concerto

Rossini: Overture, The Barber of Seville
Rautavaara: Percussion Concerto ‘Incantations’ Scottish Premiere
Stravinsky: Jeu de Cartes
Johann Strauss: II Overture, Die Fledermaus

John Storgårds: conductor; Colin Currie: percussion

High jinks in overtures to two of the most brilliant comic operas in the repertoire reflect the inspiration of Rossini and J Strauss II (among others) in Stravinsky’s racily humourous and ironic “Ballet in four deals”. Mystery in this programme is provided by featured Finn Einojuhani Rautavaara’s Incantations, composed for that much-loved sorcerer of percussion Colin Currie. The composer’s compatriot John Storgårds, a master of unorthodox concert programming, conducts.

CONNECT INSIGHTS: 6.15pm SCO Principal Timpani Matthew Hardy presents a student composition project inspired by Colin Currie’s visit.
