MOZART Symphony No. 38 in D Major, K. 504, ‘Prague’
WEBER Clarinet Concerto No. 2 in E flat Major, Op. 74
VRANICKÝ Symphony in D Op. 36
Elegance, refinement – and lavish exuberance. Charismatic Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra take you on a voyage of discovery into a world of music created especially to excite, delight and inspire.
The SCO’s compelling Principal Clarinettist Maximiliano Martín is the soloist in the sparkling virtuosity and singing melodies of Weber’s flamboyant Second Clarinet Concerto, full of the dramatic exuberance the composer had learnt in the opera house. Mozart wrote his Symphony No. 38 specifically to wow Prague audiences who he knew adored him – it’s music of deep gratitude, and of joyful high spirits.
Revered by Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, Moravian composer Pavel Vranický has been unaccountably overlooked in our own times – but his music is distinctive, inspiring and thoroughly entertaining. Join Emelyanychev and the SCO players to rediscover Vranický’s grand, sweeping Symphony in D.
Doors open 7pm.
