Every year the SCO brings the world’s finest musicians, yet it is still a special thrill when an artist of the stature of Adam Fischer makes his debut with the Orchestra. Haydn is his passion: he created both a festival and an orchestra to perform the great man’s work. He comes to Scotland with a blockbuster programme to show Haydn in symphonic, operatic and grand styles.

Das Lied von der Erde

Tickets: £12 - £21 (concessions available)
  • Haydn
  • Mahler (arr. Cortese)

"The most personal utterance among Mahler's creations, and perhaps in all music…”. The view of Mahler’s friend, the conductor Bruno Walter, who gave the premiere in 1911 and lived to conduct Das Lied at the very first Edinburgh Festival in 1947. Inspired by Chinese poetry, the music veers between earthly passions and eternal longings, ultimately dissolving into sublime nothingness. This acclaimed new chamber orchestra version was premiered at the BBC Proms. Ticciati has preceded it, playfully enough, with perhaps Haydn’s most theatrical and mad – literally mad – symphony.
