Adams: The Chairman Dances MacMillan: Violin Concerto No 2 - World Premiere (Commissioned by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, the Adam Mickiewicz Institute and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra) Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 6 in B minor, Pathétique

Nicola Benedetti, violin Maxim Emelyanychev, conductor

Join Scottish superstar violinist Nicola Benedetti and Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev to celebrate the launch of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s 2022-23 Season – in music of joyful wit, searing power and high emotion.

Nicola Benedetti gives the world premiere of the brand new Violin Concerto No 2 by Scotland’s foremost composer, Sir James MacMillan. His long musical relationship with Benedetti forms the basis for this major new work, which showcases the violinist’s renowned technical agility and exquisite poetry.

Maxim Emelyanychev brings the concert to a cathartic conclusion with the raw emotions of the Pathétique Symphony by his compatriot Tchaikovsky, while US composer John Adams kicks things off with his witty evocation of Chairman Mao tripping a foxtrot.
