About Scottish Symphony with the CBSO

Running time  This concert will last approximately 2 hours

A showcase as spectacular as the Northern Lights.

On a summer evening in Edinburgh the young Mendelssohn imagined the first notes of his Scottish symphony. It’s the sound of Highland mists, warring clans, and melodies as smoky as a single malt – a stirring contrast to Mozart’s comedy overture and the vast Nordic skies of Sibelius’s sweeping Violin Concerto. Add in Scottish composer Aileen Sweeney’s musical gleam of sunlight, alongside violin superstar Ray Chen, and you can expect fire as well as ice!
