Foretaste of Spring
An evening of unadulterated romance from the Rhineland, with the debut of Scottish conductor Rory MacDonald. You are treated to a changing landscape of dark-green woods, hills, mountains, river and lowlands. Pianist Dejan Lazic returns to join the orchestra and is sure to impress with his rendition of Beethoven’s masterwork the Emperor Concerto. We also get a foretaste of spring with Schumann’s sparkling First Symphony.
