FRANÇOIS LELEUX – Conductor
JAVIER PERIANES – Piano
To open the 2019/20 Season, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra welcomes the 2019 International Classical Music Awards ‘Artist of the Year’ Javier Perianes, performing one of the great pillars of the Romantic repertoire, Brahms’ First Piano Concerto. A huge clap of D minor thunder arrests your attention from the outset, before you are transported into a world of dance.
Javier Perianes learned his trade from the likes of Daniel Barenboim, Richard Goode and Alicia de Larrocha, and made a remarkable debut with the SCO in 2017, stepping in as a last minute substitute in Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
Dvořák’s highly dramatic, and at times tempestuous, Seventh Symphony owes stylistic debt to his great friend Brahms (and is boldly described by Classic FM as “Dvořák’s greatest symphony”). Conductor François Leleux is a remarkable musician who knows just how to draw wonderful, sensitive playing from the Orchestra.
