Passion rules in the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s Season Finale! Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine brings an abundance of French panache in Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique: unrequited love, a ‘Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath’, an intense vision of hell, and a bizarre and fantastic ending.
In contrast, Fauré’s Requiem offers gentleness and intimacy, radiant with consolation – gloriously delivered by the sublime SCO Chorus and the soothing baritone of Rudolf Rosen.
Connect insights 6.30pm: Fantastic Tales. Join storyteller Claire Hewitt and SCO Clarinet William Stafford as they conjure up Berlioz’s dark world of witchcraft and obsession. Presented in collaboration with the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
