MOZART Violin Concerto No 3 in G, K216 (24’)*
MOZART Symphony No 35 in D, K385 ‘Haffner’ (18’)**
ANNA CLYNE Within her Arms (14’)**
MOZART Violin Concerto No 5 in A, K219 ‘Turkish’ (29’)*

*Nicola Benedetti Violin/Director
**Benjamin Marquise Gilmore Violin/Director 

Benedetti play-directs two Mozart Violin Concertos with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. These lovely pieces are perfect for her: Mozart probably wrote them for himself to play on his many tours and needless to say, he made sure they had all you could wish for in a showpiece: plenty of fireworks, sublime slow movements and quirky, memorable features like the ‘Turkish’ effects in No 5. Anna Clyne’s Within her Arms has been compared to Barber’s Adagio for Strings for its radiance and intensity – a moving contrast to Mozart’s youthful high spirits.

BRILLIANT, TUNEFUL, RHYTHMIC, EXOTIC – THAT’S WHAT ‘TURKISH’ MEANT TO MOZART, AND HIS VIOLIN CONCERTO IS A JOYOUS SHOWSTOPPER FOR SCOTLAND’S FAVOURITE VIOLINIST.

Single tickets on sale at the venue box offices from Thursday 10 May. Why not subscribe to four or more concerts online now?
