Adams. Barber, Schubert

 14 December 2017 at 7.30pm 

Adams. Barber, Schubert

Queens Hall
0131 668 2019

Karina Canellakis: conductor; Benjamin Beilman: violin

Never one to settle for obvious titles to his orchestral works, Americaís greatest living composer revisits the dizzying territory of his original Chamber Symphony in typically febrile style. Barberís Violin Concerto offers a lyrical contrast in the hands of 26-year-old compatriot Benjamin Beilman. Expect a more relaxed style in Schubertís sunny Fifth Symphony under the guidance of Karina Canellakis, winner of the 2016 Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award.

PERFORMER INSIGHTS: 6.30pm Karina Canellakis introduces the eveningís concert in conversation with Sub-Principal Bassoon Alison Green.

John Adams : Son of Chamber Symphony
Samuel Barber : Violin Concerto
Franz Schubert : Symphony No 5
