Scottish Chamber Orchestra (2019)

Updated: Oct 12, 2021

Once again the incomparable SCO take our Marimba One into concert-land with their concerts on Nov 7th & 8th in Edinburgh and Glasgow for this amazing concert. This is their introduction to it!

Performance Details

BEETHOVEN Prometheus Overture (5’) CLYNE Prince of Clouds (14’) Sound and Fury World Premiere (15’) (Co-commissioned by SCO and Orchestre National de Lyon) MOZART Divertimento in D, K136 (13’) HAYDN Symphony No 60 ‘Il Distratto’ (24’)


How many symphonies could be called genuinely funny? Well, at least one: Haydn’s 60th started life in the theatre as the score for a comedy and it is packed full of gags: a great chance for Pekka Kuusisto to share his own irresistible sense of humour. SCO Associate Composer Anna Clyne may add her own comedic touches as her new piece is inspired by the Haydn. If so, it should contrast beautifully with her Prince of Clouds, a beautifully touching Double Violin Concerto, full of ravishing, glistening string writing.

SCO Leader Benjamin Marquise Gilmore partners the free-spirited Finn Pekka Kuusisto in the Grammy-nominated Double Violin Concerto Prince of Clouds by SCO Associate Composer Anna Clyne.

COMPOSER INSIGHTS, 6.45pm - 7.10pm Free for concert ticket holders in Edinburgh and Glasgow Associate Composer Anna Clyne discusses her new work and Prince of Clouds.
