Royal Scottish National Orchestra
On stage at the start of this year’s Edinburgh Festival and back at the Usher Hall for its penultimate night, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra have three Glasgow dates that are equally unmissable before returning to Edinburgh with their winter series. Two concerts in the magnificent surroundings of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, a venue originally designed for music as well as being a palace of art and culture, are followed by a welcome home to Nicola Benedetti and the launch of her third album. Featuring Vaughan Williams’ evocative The Lark Ascending, Benedetti’s programme also includes the ever popular Violin Concerto No 1 by Max Bruch. (Carol Main)
