Celebrate the arrival of 2022 and a new year of musical adventures with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and vibrant young Prague-born conductor Jiří Rožeň.
Our New Year Gala Concert offers a tempting selection of musical confection to enthral and delight from right across Europe – from the rich musical flavours of Rožeň’s homeland, in the form of Dvořák’s delicious dance-hall Prague Waltzes and a succulent Slavonic Dance, to exquisite morsels from Hungary and Germany.
The SCO is also joined by brilliant British soprano Jennifer France, who brings her silvery vocal sparkle to showpieces by Lehár and Zeller, as well as Richard Strauss’s touching love song Amor.
Your whistle-stop trip concludes with the opulence of the Strauss family’s Vienna – where else? – amid the lyrical beauty of The Blue Danube, and the roof-raising splendour of the Radetzky March.
