A Score of Many Parts

This year, we are inviting our supporters to make a gift to help us invest in the music of the RSNO. Your support of our Music Library Appeal will ensure that we can present concerts of the highest quality with world-class conductors and artists, for audiences now and in the future.

Music is vital to our performances. Conductor and vocal scores and orchestral parts are in constant use. We have, and continue to use, beautiful sets that date back to the end of the 19th century, which we house in the Bill and Margaret Nicol Library. RSNO musicians continue to play from first edition parts of many of Debussy’s orchestral works, and the parts of several Richard Strauss tone poems – which were purchased for the composer’s visit to the Orchestra in the early 1900s – are still in use today.

Although we own around 60% of the music needed for concerts, there is a constant need to keep abreast of modern, scholarly editions of Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, even Debussy and Elgar which have replaced older 19th century ones. Your vital gift will enable the RSNO to prepare now for an exciting future.

Your support enables us to create a Season of thrilling, memorable and inspiring concert performances. All our donors will be invited to a special event during the 2018:19 Season. Thank you for your generous support.
