Robin Ticciati | Conductor
Brahms | Symphony No 2
Brahms | Symphony No 4
Mercurial, magical, constantly surprising. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Robin Ticciati have enjoyed one of the music world’s most joyfully symbiotic partnerships, admired across the globe.
To mark his very final concert as the SCO’s Principal Conductor, Ticciati brings his International Festival Brahms symphony cycle to a resounding conclusion.
Full of warmth and brimming with optimism, Brahms’s joyful Second Symphony is a celebration of soaring melodic invention, as fiery as it is sensitive. His Fourth Symphony, by contrast, is one of his profoundest creations, an astonishing exploration of the cathartic power of music.
