Joseph Swensen Conductor Kolja Blacher Violin Come and join the celebrations as the SCO marks the arrival of 2023 in style – with music to lift the spirits and seduce the senses. Passionate, joyful and exuberant, Joseph Swensen is a former SCO Principal Conductor and a much-loved figure in concert halls around the world. He’s on the podium for a flavoursome concert of exquisite musical bon-bons and lollipops from the Strauss family’s Vienna and far beyond – from the excitement of the Thunder and Lightning Polka to the foot-tapping cheer of the majestic Radetzky March. Outstanding German violinist Kolja Blacher joins the Orchestra for two sensuous classics of French sophistication: the elegant romance of Chausson’s luscious Poème and the fiery gypsy flavours of Ravel’s sparkling Tzigane.
