The closing concert of the Season brings together two major talents, French violinist Renaud Capuçon and charismatic Spanish conductor Gustavo Gimeno, who makes his SCO debut.

Beethoven struggled to produce an appropriate overture for his opera Fidelio, and ultimately went through four versions. Leonore No 3 is considered the greatest of the four, and is an intensely dramatic, full-scale symphonic movement.

Renaud Capuçon brings his breathtaking virtuosity to what has become one of the world’s favourites: Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, which was written in a burst of feverish creativity.
The Season sprints to a joyous finale with Schumann’s energetic second symphony claiming a swift and stout-hearted victory.
