  • Meet in the bar area (First floor) from 13:00
  • Programme

    Mendelssohn: Symphony No.4 ‘Italian’ (c.38 mins)

    Mahler (arr. Britten): What the Wild Flowers Tell Me (c.11 mins) 

    Britten: Lachrymae* (c.15 mins)

    Rossini: Overture: The Italian Girl in Algiers (c.10 mins)

    Mendelssohn: Overture: Ruy Blas (c.7 mins)

    Summer warmth for a winter’s afternoon: Mendelssohn’s grand guignol overture rings up the curtain on an concert of brightness, shadow, and pure, heartfelt song. Mahler’s delicate intermezzo leads gently into Britten’s tear-stained tribute to the music of the Tudor era; emotion quietly stripped bare, and performed here by the exceptional young French viola player and former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Lise Berthaud. And then, an explosion of sunshine, as the rising British conductor Alpesh Chauhan dishes up first Rossini’s piquant comedy overture, followed by Mendelssohn’s most uninhibited symphony. “The BBC SSO has a real find on its hands” wrote The Herald of Chauhan’s Glasgow debut in 2015.
