EBERL Overture, Die Königin der schwarzen Inseln (The Queen of the Black Island) 

GRIME Percussion Concerto 

HAYDN Overture, L’isola disabitata 

BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4 

Edinburgh’s own percussion ace Colin Currie charms and galvanises with his exuberant playing, as SCO audiences well know from his regular and much-admired collaborations with the Orchestra. 

He brings the kaleidoscopic Percussion Concerto by Aberdeenshire-raised Helen Grime, a beguiling mix of exquisite colours and breathtaking virtuosity on metal and wood that exploits Currie’s gifts for magical melody and sonic seduction. 

Exciting young German conductor Clemens Schuldt complements Grime’s lyrical Concerto with two exotic desert-island opera overtures by Haydn and Eberl, and the taut power of Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony.
