One of Scotland’s best-loved ensembles performs the cycle of Brahms’ symphonies over two nights. In this concert we hear his first and third symphonies.

Brahms Symphony No 3

Revelatory performances, teeming with telling detail, inviting you to experience well-loved works as if for the first time. 

Robin Ticciati has been celebrated worldwide as Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since 2009, for the fresh, radiant magic of his music making.

He gives his last concerts as the SCO’s Principal Conductor at the International Festival in a visionary survey of the four towering symphonies by Brahms, bringing the incisive clarity of a chamber orchestra to these compelling symphonic masterpieces.

In the first of two concerts, Ticciati contrasts the grandeur of the First Symphony’s dramatic journey from darkness to light with the richly Romantic passions of Brahms’s deeply personal Third Symphony.
