The final concert for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in the 2014/15 concert series at Aberdeen’s Music hall on Saturday, April 25, at 7.30pm, features the mercurial Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter playing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with Jun Markl conducting.
No composer captures the soul of the romantic piano quite like Chopin and this is his most ambitious and largest-scale work for solo piano and orchestra. Ingrid Fliter has established her reputation as one of the most exciting young virtuosos around today and much of that reputation is built on her fine performances of Chopin music.
Chopin also opens the concert in Stravinsky’s intriguing arrangement of his Nocturne in A-flat. One of Mendelssohn’s most popular and enduring masterpieces, the exhilarating Symphony No. 4 “Italian” completes the programme.
This concert brings back together the team of Fliter and Markl, who joined the SCO in summer 2013 to record both Chopin concertos, a disc released in 2014 on Linn Records to wonderful reviews. The disc is available to buy in-store and online from
and will be on sale at the concert.

The SCO aims to provide as many opportunities as possible for people to hear their music by touring the length and breadth of Scotland and around the world as proud ambassadors for Scottish cultural excellence.
