MAXIM EMELYANYCHEV Conductor CAROLIN WIDMANN Violin
Be among the first to welcome the SCO’s new Principal Conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev. Maxim is joined by award-winning German violinist Carolin Widmann, who makes her SCO debut with Prokofiev’s much-loved Second Violin Concerto. Infused with graceful melodies equal to those in his popular Romeo and Juliet ballet music, it also boasts a nomadic charm that mixes traditional Russian folk music with Spanish and French accents. Maxim concludes the concert with a dazzling display of musical fireworks and craftsmanship that is the culmination of Mozart’s final contribution to the symphonic repertoire, Jupiter.
