Ligeti Concert RomânescTchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 Mendelssohn Symphony No.3 ‘Scottish’Dalia Stasevska conductorBehzod Abduraimov pianoHigh in the mountains of Transylvania, a shepherd sounds his horn, and gypsies tune their fiddles. The young Felix Mendelssohn wanders through a twilit Edinburgh, and imagines warring clans and mist-covered Highlands. And Tchaikovsky sets a lone pianist against a full orchestra in one of the most gripping – and tuneful – piano concertos ever written. Guest conductor Dalia Stasevska knows that music can paint pictures, but tonight she takes us on a journey, too – with the phenomenal Behzod Abduraimov as our travelling companion.£46/£36/£27/£22/£15
