ELENA LANGER Suite: Figaro Gets a Divorce

MOZART Concerto in E-flat for two Pianos 

HAYDN Symphony No 94 ‘Surprise’

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with fun and laughter? Join Maxim Emelyanychev as he marks the very month of the SCO’s 50th Anniversary with music explicitly designed to raise a smile – or even a belly laugh.

Elena Langer imagines what became of Mozart’s larger-than-life characters after his classic comic opera The Marriage of Figaro in her glittering, jazzy score, while Mozart himself plays pianistic pranks aplenty in his quicksilver concert for two pianos – with Maxim and his friend and colleague Dmitry Ablogin as soloists.

Hang on to your seats as Haydn’s ‘Surprise’ Symphony brings the festivities to an unpredictable conclusion. And expect a few more special birthday surprises along the way…

Fri 19 Jan, 7.30pm City Halls, Glasgow
