Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Ticciati conducts Berlioz

Friday, April 5, 2013 - 19:30

Robin Ticciati continues his journey with the SCO through the music of Berlioz with Harold in Italy. A solo viola represents Byron’s wistful dreamer Childe Harold in a sequence of Italian musical adventures, climaxing in the swaggering Orgie des Brigands. A direct line connects Weber, Schumann and Berlioz – they were kindred spirits, key figures without whom the Age of Romanticism would never have ignited such a blaze of inspiration.

Pre-Concert talk: 6.30pm (free to ticket holders) Author and musicologist David Cairns talks about Berlioz’s Harold in Italy.
