Critical Acclaim For New Partnership
The new Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra was in Edinburgh this week to perform with the Section Principals of his new orchestra. The incredible response has made their forthcoming debut recording together an even more mouth-watering prospect!
5* "...dark and sassy start of exciting partnership...It fizzed, it sang and, importantly, it showed how Emelyanychev could galvanise them together as a team." The Times
4* "This was a hot ticket because it was a recital by Edinburgh’s home team, with the new Principal Conductor at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the piano...if anyone was in any doubt what an asset the pianist is likely to prove as the SCO’s new Principal Conductor, well, they ken better noo." The Herald
4* "If this breezy and affable chamber concert, featuring the SCO’s new principal conductor Maxim Emelyanychev on piano alongside a clutch of the orchestra’s principals, is reflective of what is to come under the Russian maestro’s leadership, then friendly times lie ahead." The Scotsman
