Marc-André Hamelin plays Chopin

Canadian Marc-André Hamelin is a true piano virtuoso in the mould of historical greats Liszt or Rachmaninov, combining astonishing power with a miraculous, impeccable technique – and exceptional sensitivity.

He joins Edinburgh’s own Scottish Chamber Orchestra and opens with Beethoven's dramatic Leonore Overture No 3. This is followed by Chopin’s breathtakingly beautiful Second Piano Concerto, full of youthful high spirits and heart-on-itssleeve emotion.

Eminent Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste was the SCO’s Principal Conductor in the late 1980s, and he returns to the Orchestra for his compatriot Sibelius’s elegant but stirring Third Symphony, lesser known but full of the composer’s renowned vigour and evocative scene-painting.
