Be among the first to welcome our new Principal Conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev!
He explores many different styles and genres throughout his debut Season, starting with leading French film composer Philippe Hersant. Maxim is joined by the fabulous, 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. For contrast, Maxim completes his first concert as Principal Conductor with a celebratory bang – a dazzling display of musical fireworks and craftsmanship that is the culmination of Mozart’s final contribution to the symphonic repertoire, ‘Jupiter’.
