Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Paris Masterworks

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - 19:30

SCO Conductor Emeritus, Joseph Swensen returns to Scotland with a programme with Paris at its heart. Mozart wrote this symphony immediately after leaving Paris – a terrible time for him, though you would never know it from the music. His delightful concerto pairs the world-class SCO Principal Flute Alison Mitchell with harpist Sivan Magen – a musician who dazzles audiences wherever he goes. Debussy’s virtuso showpiece should give him plenty of opportunity to shine. Swensen closes with the miraculous symphony Bizet wrote at the age of just 17 – and to this day it is one of the most popular works in the world.
