Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh
With 23 main evening concerts on selected Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays the Scottish Chamber Orchestra enlivens Edinburgh's musical scene, often with principal conductor Robin Ticciati at the helm. Although the delightful Queen's Hall is home, it also plays the larger Usher Hall.
Formed in 1974, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra is one of Scotland's foremost cultural ambassadors, collaborating with the likes of late, lamented Sir Charles Mackerras, now-retired pianist Alfred Brendel and contemporary composers Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and James MacMillan.
Ticciati's second season opens with Berlioz and includes almost all Beethoven's symphonies and concertos as well as rarities such as Dvorák's Fifth Symhony, Brahms' First Serenade and Grieg's only Symphony. Guest conductors include John Storgards, Louis Langrée, Joseph Swenson and Oliver Knussen. St Cuthbert's Parish Church hour-long Cl@Six concerts take place on certain Tuesdays.
