What better way to celebrate a birthday than with fun and laughter? Join Maxim Emelyanychev as he marks the very month of the SCO’s 50th Anniversary with music explicitly designed to raise a smile – or even a belly laugh.
Elena Langer imagines what became of Mozart’s larger-than-life characters after his classic comic opera The Marriage of Figaro in her glittering, jazzy score, while Mozart himself plays pianistic pranks aplenty in his quicksilver concert for two pianos – with Maxim and his friend and colleague Dmitry Ablogin as soloists.
Hang on to your seats as Haydn’s ‘Surprise’ Symphony brings the festivities to an unpredictable conclusion. And expect a few more special birthday surprises along the way…
Elena Langer: Suite: Figaro Gets a Divorce
Mozart: Concerto in E-flat for two Pianos
Haydn: Symphony No 94 ‘Surprise’
Maxim Emelyanychev: Conductor/Piano
Dmitry Ablogin: Piano
Estimated duration: 85mins (incl. 20min interval)
