Our next orchestral concert

Saturday 19th November 2016
Inverleith St Serf's Church, Ferry Road, 7.45 pm

Brahms Symphony No 4
Sibelius Violin Concerto

Conductor David Watkin
Violin Alexander Janiczek

Professor Donald Tovey once wrote "I have not met a more original, a more masterly, and a more exhilarating work than the Sibelius violin concerto". Symphonic in structure, with almost equal importance given to the orchestral accompaniment, the concerto will be performed by the eminent violinist Alexander Janiczek. A regular guest with the MCO, David Watkin conducts Brahms's 4th symphony, a work "that ought to leave you intellectually battered and emotionally bruised rather than superficially consoled". It remains one of music's most powerful and astonishing compositions.
