In Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth, powerful Russian-US pianist Kirill Gerstein is sure to make a strong impression as soloist in Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto – understandably one of the world’s best-loved works with its heart-on-sleeve emotion and soaring romantic melodies

In Stirling, Ayr, Craigmillar and Aberdeen the SCO’s Principal Clarinet Maximiliano Martín joins Principal Viola Max Mandel in Max Bruch’s tender, intimate Double Concerto, written for his clarinettist son – and every bit as richly Romantic as the composer’s famed Violin Concerto No. 1.

Beethoven’s majestic ‘Eroica’ Symphony brings the festivities to a rousing, soul-lifting conclusion, while SCO Associate Composer Jay Capperauld – one of Scotland’s most exciting and original voices – unveils a kaleidoscopic new piece written specially for the Orchestra’s anniversary year.
