Changes to concert
It is with regret that both conductor Robin Ticciati and soloist Sir András Schiff are unable to be with us for this performance. We hope there will be an opportunity for them to collaborate together with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in the future.
We are delighted that our Conductor Emeritus Joseph Swensen has kindly agreed to step in alongside gifted Czech pianist Lukáš Vondráček. We are pleased to be presenting Dvorak Piano Concerto and Brahms Symphony No 3 as originally programmed. Three Brahms Hungarian Dances replace Bach Orchestral Suite No 3.
