He brings great tunes, life and good humour. Rossini’s overture is pure entertainment. Respighi’s suite is a chocolate box of miniature masterpieces inspired by bestselling Renaissance songs and dances. Mendelssohn’s First Symphony was encored so much at its London premiere that the evening went on and on. The SCO’s own fine clarinettists step into the spotlight to complete the evening with a brace of duos guaranteed to bring a smile.
