Scottish Chamber Orchestra preform Beethoven Symphony No 2

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra will perform Beethoven Symphony No 2 which was once lovingly described as a “hideously writhing, wounded dragon” by a Viennese newspaper.

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Edinburgh will be delighting its audience with an outstanding performance. The evening will feature the World Premiere of James MacMillan’s new arrangement: Concertino for Horn and Strings.

James MacMillan – World Premiere

Alec Frank-Gemmill will be positioned front and centre as Principal Horn for MacMillan’s new arrangement. Alec is recognised across the globe for his unprecedented musical talents and his musical performances range from the Baroque era to the latest contemporary compositions. It’s no surprise that The Daily Telegraph described Alec’s musical abilities as “unforced” and “richly responsive”.
