Join violinist Nicola Benedetti and the SCO for a special concert featuring one of the most enduringly popular works in the violin repertoire.
The teenage Mozart composed his elegant First Violin Concerto in Salzburg. The work’s balance of exuberant athleticism and tender melody is the ideal match for Benedetti’s supremely lyrical playing. She returns to lead the SCO strings in the intense emotions of Schoenberg’s early Verklärte Nacht, whose tale of infidelity and transcendent love guides the passionate score from brooding darkness into radiant light.
Two of Johann Strauss II’s most evocative pieces bookend this captivating concert, directed by Benjamin Marquise Gilmore. The Gypsy Baron Overture is a richly orchestrated Austro-Hungarian cocktail of gypsy spice and rousing rhythms, while the folk-inspired Tales from the Vienna Woods is a sublime ode in praise of the natural world.
