MOZART Symphony No 33
MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto

Exceptional Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti performed with the SCO at the Orchestra’s final live concerts before the lockdown in March 2020. She returns to the Orchestra to reconsider one of the masterpieces she played a year ago: Mendelssohn’s dazzling Violin Concerto. From the heartfelt melancholy of its touching first movement to the elfin mischief of its quicksilver finale, it’s a dazzling display of violinistic virtuosity – and the ideal piece to highlight Benedetti’s perceptive musicianship.

Beforehand, SCO Co-Leader Benjamin Marquise Gilmore directs Mozart’s sunny, playful Symphony No. 33, in which the composer brings all the intensity and intricacy of chamber music to the symphonic stage.  Tickets £8
