Sunday 1st September 2019 at 7:30pm
Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra
Verdi: Overture to "La Forza del destino"
Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No 1 in F♯ minor

soloist: Jill Morton
Respighi: The Pines of Rome

Although the Festival fireworks will be over, our opening concert provides an explosive combination of musical experiences! The capacity audience who witnessed Jill Morton's stunning performance of Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto in 2017 will need no encouragement to hear her in his first concerto. Fireworks of a contrasting nature are provided by Respighi’s "Pines of Rome" - a multi-coloured kaleidoscope celebrating the Eternal City, while Strauss’s "Zarathustra" is a virtuosic orchestral showpiece in which Sinfonia's 100 musicians plus organ can be heard in full cry! Verdi’s dramatic "Force of Destiny" overture completes this exciting programme.

TICKETS £15.00 (concessions: £13.00; Student: £8.00; schoolchildren: free) from the Usher Hall Box Office (0131 228 1155), from Members of the Orchestra, and at the door.
