Scottish Symphony

Bruch Concerto for Violin and Viola (17')
Mozart Symphony No.36 ‘Linz' (26')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Mendelssohn Symphony No.3 ‘Scottish’ (43')

Julian Rachlin conductor/violin
Sarah McElravy viola

On a summer evening in Edinburgh, amid the ruins of Holyrood Castle, Felix Mendelssohn imagined the first notes of his Scottish symphony. It’s all there in the music, and when conductor Julian Rachlin returns to the Orchestra, it’ll spring vividly to life. That goes double for Mozart’s sunny, celebratory Linz symphony – and since we’re talking doubles, how about a lovely, neglected concerto by former Liverpool Philharmonic music director Max Bruch? With Sarah McElravy on viola and Julian Rachlin on violin, it’s never sounded more natural.
