Information about the programme

The BRSO welcomes Maxim Emelyanychev, one of the most fascinating talents of the young generation of conductors, to its podium for the first time. Trained by the legendary Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Emelyanychev began his conducting career in his native Russia, while at the same time attracting attention as an extraordinary pianist – with CD recordings of Mozart sonatas, for example, or playing the fortepiano in Teodor Currentzis’ Da Ponte cycle. Since 2013 he has led the highly successful Italian Baroque ensemble Il pomo d’oro, and since 2019 he has also led the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He has made highly acclaimed recordings with both ensembles. For his BRSO debut, Emelyanychev has put together an attractive Romantic program in which one can expect a fresh approach inspired by the music of the Classical and Baroque periods. This is also in line with violinist Isabelle Faust’s approach – especially for the Brahms concerto, in which she pursues the ideal of clarity, transparency and lightness.
