**CHANGE OF CONDUCTOR**
Music Director Thomas Søndergård replaces Krzysztof Penderecki for Anne-Sophie Mutter concert.
RSNO Music Director Thomas Søndergård will work with the “...undisputed queen of violin-playing…” Anne-Sophie Mutter as he replaces composer Krzysztof Penderecki on the podium for two dates in Scotland.
Penderecki has had to withdraw from his scheduled performance with the RSNO due to personal reasons, and Søndergård is happy to accept the opportunity to work with one of the world’s great soloists.
Living legends: Anne-Sophie Mutter is one of the world’s greatest violinists, universally acclaimed for her gleaming sound and effortless mastery. Krzysztof Penderecki is a giant among living composers, whose uncompromisingly emotional music brought a ray of light to the darkest days of the Cold War. To celebrate Penderecki’s 85th birthday, they come together in his colourful Second Violin Concerto – before Penderecki conducts Tchaikovsky’s gloriously tuneful Fifth Symphony. Make no mistake: this should be very special indeed.
Supported by the RSNO Foundation.
