About Scottish Chamber Orchestra at Stirling Castle

HAYDN Cello Concerto No 1 in C major Hob VIIb:1
VERESS Transylvanian Dances
BEETHOVEN Symphony No 7

Nicolas Altstaedt cello / director

Love classical music or just an avid fan of the cello? Allow your heart to flutter as multi-award winning cellist Nicolas Altstaedt dons his musical glory in Stirling for one night of musical magic.
He performs Haydn’s dazzling first concerto, composed for the Eszterházy, which lies in what is now Hungary. The same country provides folk music inspiration for Transylvanian Dances by native Sándor Veress.
Since it was chosen as the backdrop to Colin Firth’s dramatic address in The King’s Speech, Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony has become one of his most recognised and popular pieces, in particular the expressive, slow second movement. Be prepared to feel uplifted.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Chamber Orchestra at Stirling Castle are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
