The Royal Scottish National Orchestra has been one of Britain’s leading orchestras for several decades, collaborating with such conductors as Neeme Järvi and Marin Alsop. Our own chief conductor Elim Chan is also the orchestra’s first guest director. The soloist on this occasion is the Australian violinist Ray Chen, the laureate of the 2009 Queen Elisabeth Competition, who has become one of the world’s most in-demand violinists since then. He will perform Tchaikovsky’s phenomenal Violin Concerto, which is widely regarded as the most beautiful concerto of its kind in the classical repertoire thanks to the brilliant melodies. This will be followed by more virtuoso violin sounds in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade. A superb orchestral suite that succeeds in conjuring up the world in the fairytales of Arabian Nights.
