‘I embrace you, all you millions!’ There are moments when only Beethoven really hits the spot, and there’s no better way to end our Season than with his mighty Choral symphony – a masterpiece that begins in darkest tragedy and ends with that roof-raising, life-affirming Ode to Joy. Thomas Søndergård conducts the RSNO and RSNO Chorus and introduces a magical new flute concerto from 21st century Scotland, commissioned by the RSNO and performed by our very own Katherine Bryan.

The performances of Jay Capperauld’s Our Gilded Veins, part of the RSNO’s Scotch Snaps series, are kindly supported by the John Ellerman Foundation, the John Mather Trust’s Rising Star grant, and the Fidelio Charitable Trust.
