Joseph Swensen Conductor
Kolja Blacher Violin

Come and join the celebrations as the SCO marks the arrival of 2023 in style – with music to lift the spirits and seduce the senses.

Passionate, joyful and exuberant, Joseph Swensen is a former SCO Principal Conductor and a much-loved figure in concert halls around the world. He’s on the podium for a flavoursome concert of exquisite musical bon-bons and lollipops from the Strauss family’s Vienna and far beyond – from the graceful lapping of The Blue Danube to the foot-tapping cheer of the majestic Radetzky March.

Outstanding German violinist Kolja Blacher joins the Orchestra for two sensuous classics of French sophistication: the elegant romance of Chausson’s luscious Poème and the fiery gypsy flavours of Ravel’s sparkling Tzigane.
