Earlier this week, the SCO and Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati flew to Spain for two concerts in the music festival Quincena Musical de San Sebastián: a follow-up to the recent BBC Prom reuniting with pianist Stephen Hough and a sensational performance of Fauré's Requiem with Sir Thomas Allen and the Orfeón Donostiarra chorus.
The festival has sent us some brilliant photos from the Fauré concert...
