Performance Details

NIELSEN Helios Overture (12’)
SIBELIUS Symphony No 3 in C, Op 52 (31’)
BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto in D (42’)         

What a way to open the SCO Season in Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow! A melting pot of musical, artistic and creative wealth delivered by Enrique Mazzola – an Italian full of passion and life, and a happy, sunny character. Sibelius’ Third Symphony oozes with desperate intensity while Nielsen’s Helios is a vivid musical evocation of sunshine shimmering and glittering on the sea. The warmth continues with one of Norway’s brightest stars Vilde Frang, who joins for Beethoven’s noble Violin Concerto.
