A concert full of stories – from Shostakovich’s Cold War thriller concerto, performed by our new Principal Cello Pei-Jee Ng, to Lera Auerbach’s Greek myth of Icarus and Rimsky-Korsakov’s 1001 nights tale of Scheherazade. Music Director Thomas Søndergård will bring every note to life.

In Glasgow, we also give a warm welcome to the young musicians of Big Noise Govanhill as they perform a special opener to the evening.

Pre-concert talk: RSNO Concerts Administrator Matthias van der Swaagh chats to RSNO Principal Cor Anglais Henry Clay and Icarus composer Lera Auerbach at 6.45pm in the Upper Circle Bar in Edinburgh and the Clyde Foyer in Glasgow. Free to ticket holders.

Dedicated to Dr Robert Lillie in recognition of his generous support of the RSNO Foundation.
