Brahms Serenade

Tickets: £10-£31
  • Mahler (arr. Britten)
  • Suckling
  • Brahms

Composers dream of the kind of reviews SCO Associate Composer Martin Suckling had for Candlebird when it was premiered in 2011: “staggeringly assured…” (The Sunday Times); “superbly accomplished… utterly surefooted” (The Guardian).

Suckling modestly says that he simply “set out to write songs, in a rather traditional sense” but his musical response to the words of Don Paterson is of a very high order indeed. He is surrounded by formidable masters, and this richly varied programme culminates in vintage Brahms.
