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, America’s greatest living composer revisits the dizzying territory of his original Chamber Symphony in typically febrile style. Barber’s Violin Concerto offers a lyrical contrast in the hands of 26-year-old compatriot Benjamin Beilman. Expect a more relaxed style in Schubert’s 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 evening’s concert in conversation with Sub-Principal Bassoon Alison Green.

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

Launched in August, the competition challenged amateur composers from across the country to create a 21st-century carol for a 15th-century text: Sir Christemas.

The six finalists whose works you will hear in this short afternoon performance were all selected by a team of expert judges, including Judith Weir, Master of the Queen's Music, and David Hill, Chief Conductor of the BBC Singers.
