There’s a distinct Scandinavian flavour to this sunny, lyrical programme from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. The Norwegian Edvard Grieg created a tribute to the 17th century playwright Holberg when writing his delightful Suite. Finn Bernard Crusell’s Romantic Clarinet Concerto will be a joy in the hands of SCO Principal Clarinet Maximiliano Martín. Lars-Erik Larsson was a cornerstone of Swedish musical life in the early twentieth century and his Pastoral Suite is inspired by poetry. The concert closes with Schubert’s joyful Third Symphony.
