WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Schumann Piano Concerto

JS Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No 1 
Schumann: Piano Concerto
Haydn: Symphony No 101 ‘The Clock’

Robin Ticciati: conductor; Igor Levit: piano

Schumann wrote several pieces for piano and orchestra, but the work heard tonight is his only fully-fledged piano concerto. Composed for Schumann’s wife, Clara, the concerto features Igor Levit, winner of Gramophone Magazine’s Recording of the Year 2016.

Bach’s First Brandenburg Concerto provides a festive upbeat. Of the six Brandenburg Concertos, this has the most colourful instrumentarium; it also contains an unusually varied selection of movements, including a courtly minuet and a Polish peasant dance. Haydn’s Symphony No 101 completes the programme; its highly inventive use of music conceived for a mechanical clock has helped make it one of his most popular works.
