Weber (orch. Berlioz) Invitation to the Dance
Schumann Cello Concerto
Brahms (orch. Schoenberg) Piano Quartet in G minor
Alexander Vedernikov, conductor
Johannes Moser, cello
Passions ran deep in the Romantic era, and a simple dance rhythm could be enough to set hearts pounding. Weber's Invitation to the Dance begins with quiet courtesy, but in Berlioz's silken, glittering orchestration it positively whirls you off your feet. And Brahms starts his Piano Quartet
with three movements of mellow emotion - before suddenly cutting loose in the wildest, craziest folk-dance he ever wrote. Schoenberg loved this piece, and his uproariously entertaining orchestral version doesn't stint on either colour or panache. Hearing is believing: and that goes double when guest conductor Alexander Vedernikov joins the distinguished German cellist Johannes Moser in Schumann's ardent Cello Concerto
£29.50, £26.50, £23.50, £19.50, £14.50 (inc £1.50 booking fee per ticket); under 26s/students/Young Scot £6; 18 and under go FREE (under 16s to be accompanied by an adult)
