Season Opener: Strauss & Mahler One

Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

5 October 2019

Since the arrival of Danish maestro Thomas Søndergård in 2018, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra has been playing like a band transformed, and its season-opener is brimming with pizzazz. Richard Strauss’ swashbuckler Don Juan is always a tough act to follow, but Søndergård has found the perfect match: the equally bold and ambitious First Symphony by Strauss’ contemporary and friendly rival, Gustav Mahler. Between them, Alban Berg’s ravishing, deeply romantic Seven Early Songs will be like a deep, soft oasis of sensuality and calm, especially when sung by the superb Scottish mezzo Karen Cargill.
