Scottish Fantasy, Op. 46

- Intermission -

Symphony No. 5 in D major


Windswept beauty, sunset nostalgia

Gliding over forbearing seas, the swell of steadfast waves, myth and monument withstanding time - and Tintagel rises from the cliffs. This all-British programme of soul-stirring music stars the versatile and inspiring violinist Rachel Barton Pine, SSO's Artist-in-Residence in 2019/20, in the ever-popular Scottish Fantasy by Bruch, concluding with the hushed and heartfelt beauty of Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony.


We are delighted to collaborate with Rachel Barton Pine in the 2019/20 season. As part of her residency, Pine will share the stage with SSO musicians in VCHPresents Excite!: Shredding with a String Quartet on 27 October. Pine will also give a talk in the YST Forum Series on 29 October.
