Shostakovich Twelve
Edinburgh, Scotland
Friday, 10 November 2017 - 7:30 PM
Glasgow, Scotland

Conductor: José Luis Gómez
As thoughts turn to Remembrance Day, the RSNO reflects on Petrograd, 1917: angry crowds fill the streets, the guns of a warship thunder in the distance, and the air buzzes with revolutionary songs. Shostakovich’s Twelfth Symphony is all about history on a blockbuster scale – the definitive musical re-telling of the Bolshevik Revolution. But before that red dawn, a glance back at a more romantic age, as guest conductor José Luis Gomez welcomes the newly-crowned winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Yekwon Sunwoo, in Rachmaninov’s glittering Third Concerto.

In collaboration with Poppy Scotland.

Join us at 6.45 for our pre-concert talk with Katherine Wren (RSNO Viola) in conversation with Daniel Kidane. Free to ticket holders.

Please note this concert was originally billed with Cristian Măcelaru conducting. Unfortunately maestro Măcelaru is unwell and has had to withdraw from this weekend's concerts. We are very grateful to José Luis Gomez for stepping in at the last minute to conduct this weekend, and we wish maestro Măcelaru a speedy recovery. The programme remains unchanged.
