Pulcinella Suite (24’)
CRESSWELL
Clarinet Concerto ‘Llanto’ SCO Commission: World Premiere (18’)
SCHUBERT
Symphony No 4 in C minor ‘Tragic’ (31’)

Charismatic and compelling on stage, SCO Principal Clarinet Maximiliano Martín is a superb concerto soloist. Here, he premieres Llanto (Lament), written especially for him by Lyell Cresswell whose own track record with concertos is formidable ­- including a commission for the BBC Proms. The drama of pitching soloist against orchestra inspires him to compose powerfully dramatic music. Award-winning young conductor Clemens Schuldt gives us playful (Stravinsky at his most hilarious) and ‘tragic’ – though Schubert’s Symphony has many more upbeat than sombre moments.

Composer insights: 6.30pm
Lyell Cresswell and Professor William Sweeney from the University of Glasgow discuss writing for the clarinet.
