New Artist name: Yekwon Sunwoo

Repertoire Change:  Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No3 replaces Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No1.

****Latest Update 9th November**** Due to illness, Cristian Macelaru will no longer be conducting. At very much the 11th hour, the Orchestra has been successful in enticing US-based maestro José Luis Gomez to Scotland. Furthermore, the programme will no longer include Rachmaninov’s Vocalise. Therefore, see below for the running order is.

A native of Venezuela, Gomez began his career as a violinist and led orchestras in El Sistema. He was Assistant to Paavo Jarvi at the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and in 2010 won First Prize in the Solti Conducting Competition. José is currently Music Director of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. We are grateful that he has stepped in at the last minute and arrived from America with a score of the symphony in his pocket. “Who doesn’t travel with Shostakovich 12?”

As thoughts turn to Remembrance Day, the RSNO reflects on Petrograd, 1917: angry crowds fill the streets, the guns of a warship thunder in the distance, and the air buzzes with revolutionary songs. Shostakovich’s Twelfth Symphony is all about history on a blockbuster scale – the definitive musical re-telling of the Bolshevik Revolution.

But before that red dawn, a glance back at a more romantic age, as guest conductor José Luis Gomez, who replaces​ Cristian Măcelaru,  welcomes the newly-crowned winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, Yekwon Sunwoo, in Rachmaninov’s dramatic Third Concerto.
