Later this month the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, embarks on its first tour under the baton of Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard.
The six concert tour includes performances in Germany, Austria and Italy culminating with a performance at the world famous Musikverein, Vienna.
The BBC SSO joins forces with violinist Nikolaj Znaider to perform Brahms’ Violin Concerto alongside Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish’ Symphony and interludes from Britten’s Peter Grimes.
Thomas Dausgaard, Chief Conductor of the BBC SSO, says: “I am extremely excited at the prospect of sharing our music with audiences across central Europe in our first international tour together, culminating in the glorious Musikverein in Vienna."
Dominic Parker, Director of the BBC SSO said, “After a first season with Thomas Dausgaard as Chief Conductor that saw some exceptional concerts in Glasgow, at the Edinburgh International Festival and at the BBC Proms in London, it is a perfect time for us to be venturing further afield into the Europe's musical heartland, through Germany, into Italy, and performing in some of the finest concert halls in the world, including the Musikverein in Vienna for the first time.”
The Orchestra perform the same programme at Glasgow City Halls this week, Thursday 26 October, with violinist Alexandra Soumm, before departing to Europe.
