SCO Summer Tour 2024: Mozart & Beethoven

Thursday 12 September, 2024

Imagine waking up to the Siegfried Idyll: that’s just how Wagner’s wife first heard it on Christmas morning in 1870, and it’s among his most delicate works – an ideal way to start a concert exploring an unexpected side to favourite composers.

Mozart shows his affinity for wind instruments in a surprisingly early Sinfonia Concertante, written for some of the finest musicians of his day and performed here by SCO Principals – after which Beethoven defies expectations in his Symphony No 2, arguably even more revolutionary a work than the Eroica of two years later.

Kindly supported by Eriadne & George Mackintosh and Claire & Anthony Tait.
