Daytime & Early Evening Concerts

We understand it's not always possible for everyone to get out and about at night: family commitments, transport issues or maybe you're simply not a night owl... but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy music with the RSNO. We have a great selection of daytime and early evening concerts for you to enjoy.


Brahms' German Requiem

The RSNO Chorus sounds great in the Royal Concert Hall, so imagine how it’ll feel to hear them singing up close and personal in the wonderfully intimate setting of the New Auditorium. Written in memory of his mother, Brahms’ German Requiem is the great master at his most tender and…

Chamber Series: French Songs with Karen Cargill

Simon Lepper PIANO
Maya Iwabuchi VIOLIN
Xander van Vliet VIOLIN
Tom Dunn VIOLA
Aleksei Kiseliov CELLO

Delicious decadence… at the start of the 20th century, Paris was the world’s capital of art, luxury and l’amour. This exquisite recital from Scotland’s international star mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill dives deep into that sensuous, seductive world – from…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Steven Osborne Recital

Ask Steven Osborne which music he’d choose above all others, and he replies ‘Beethoven, for the enormous emotional range, the intellectual engagement, the earthiness, the humour, and the genius way of dealing with musical structure.’ So even though there’s practically nothing that this great Scottish pianist can’t play, the prospect…

Singing Day: Verdi Requiem

Verdi’s Requiem is one of the most thrilling choral works in existence – and if you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to be in the middle of that incredible sound, now’s your chance! In this one-off scratch performance with piano, you’ll get to rehearse it with the RSNO’s Chorus…

Symphony, Soup and a Sandwich: Brahms Piano Quartet No1

Nicolai’s Overture to The Merry Wives of Windsor begins with the moon rising over Windsor Great Park. Brahms’ First Piano Quartet ends with the wildest and most unbridled of all gypsy dances – at least, in this flamboyant orchestral version. Although technically not a symphony, this symphonic masterpiece is the…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Beethoven & Strauss Duos

Each player in the RSNO is a star in their own right, and the nice thing about chamber music is that it allows them to step out of the orchestra and really shine in the music they love best. For the RSNO’s Belarusian Principal Cello Aleksei Kiseliov, that means teaming…

Symphony, Soup and a Sandwich: Franck Symphony in D minor

Forget Hercule Poirot: here’s a real famous Belgian. César Franck seemed like a quiet type until, late in life, he fell in love, and his music suddenly exploded with passion and power. His single, magnificent Symphony begins in gothic grandeur and ends with celebration – and a tune that you’ll…

Chamber Series: Beethoven Revolution - Beethoven Septet

Take Beethoven at his happiest, give him seven virtuoso musicians, throw in a couple of pop tunes and the result is irresistible. But if Beethoven’s Septet is pure musical sunshine, this fantastic miniature version of Richard Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel is sheer knockabout farce – brilliantly played. For today’s RSNO players,…
