Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Ticciati conducts Berlioz
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.
