Beethoven: Leonora Overture No 3
Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No1 in D Major
Stravinsky: The Firebird Suite 1945
Maxim Emelyanychev, conductor
Alina Ibragimova, violin
Join the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for a resplendent close to their spring season as Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev directs Stravinsky at his most lavish and opulent.
The Firebird is the ballet score that made Stravinsky’s name, with music of glittering colours and enormous emotional power telling a magical Russian fairytale. Expect fresh new perspectives on the music as Emelyanychev conducts a specially expanded SCO for this celebratory occasion.
Beforehand, dazzling Russian-born British violinist Alina Ibragimova is the soloist in Prokofiev’s brightly coloured, bracingly energetic First Violin Concerto, and Emelyanychev kicks off the evening of spectacle and wonder with Beethoven’s intensely powerful Overture.
