FAURÉ Requiem (37’)
BERLIOZ Symphonie Fantastique (50’)

EMMANUEL KRIVINE Conductor
RUDOLF ROSEN Baritone
SCO CHORUS
GREGORY BATSLEER Chorus Director

Passion rules in the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s Season Finale! Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine brings an abundance of French panache in Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique: unrequited love, a ‘Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath’, an intense vision of hell, and a bizarre and fantastic ending. In contrast, Fauré’s Requiem offers gentleness and intimacy, radiant with consolation – gloriously delivered by the sublime SCO Chorus and the soothing baritone of Rudolf Rosen.

Heinrich Heine perceptively described the Symphonie fantastique as “a bizarre sort of night piece, now and then illuminated by the sentimental whiteness of a woman’s robe fluttering to and fro or by a sulphur-yellow gleam of irony”.

Connect insights 6.30pm: Fantastic Tales. Join storyteller Claire Hewitt and SCO Clarinet William Stafford as they conjure up Berlioz’s dark world of witchcraft and obsession. Presented in collaboration with the Scottish Storytelling Centre.
