TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto 

WALEY-COHEN Pocket Cosmos   

BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4 


Pekka Kuusisto Director / Violin

One of the SCO’s closest musical friends, outstanding Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto is famed for his pioneering performances and melding of styles. For his first concert with the Orchestra this Season, he directs and plays one of the best-loved masterpieces in the Romantic violin repertoire. 

Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto is a musical love letter, one of the tenderest, most lyrical creations for the instrument ever conceived, with heartbreaking melodies and a furiously fiery finale. Kuusisto contrasts Tchaikovsky’s poignant creation with young British composer Freya Waley-Cohen’s contemplation of nothing less than the workings of the universe, and Beethoven’s most compact and cheerful Symphony. 

Pekka Kuusisto Visiting Artist Chair kindly supported by The Honorary Consulate of Finland, Edinburgh and Glasgow
