SCO Emelyanychev Conducts Mozart's Jupiter
HERSANT Five Pieces for Orchestra UK Premiere PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No2 MOZART Symphony No41 ‘Jupiter’, K551
MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV Conductor CAROLIN WIDMANN Violin
Be among the first to welcome the SCO’s new Principal Conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev. Maxim is joined by award-winning German violinist Carolin Widmann, who makes her SCO debut with Prokofiev’s much-loved Second Violin Concerto. Infused with graceful melodies equal to those in his popular Romeo and Juliet ballet music, it also boasts a nomadic charm that mixes traditional Russian folk music with Spanish and French accents. Maxim concludes the concert with a dazzling display of musical fireworks and craftsmanship that is the culmination of Mozart’s final contribution to the symphonic repertoire, Jupiter.
