Maxim Emelyanychev to conduct Scottish Chamber Orchestra in Haydn’s ‘The Seasons’

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra has announced that Principal Conductor Designate Maxim Emelyanychev will replace an indisposed Bernard Labadie to conduct Haydn’s The Seasons at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on 11 October and Glasgow’s City Halls on 12 October 2018.

These will be his first concerts with the SCO following the announcement that Maxim will become Principal Conductor from September 2019. Labadie has sadly had to withdraw due to minor surgery.

Maxim and the Orchestra will be joined by the SCO Chorus and a fantastic line-up of soloists – soprano Lucy Crowe, tenor Andrew Staples and bass-baritone Neal Davies.

SCO Chief Executive Gavin Reid explains:

“We are disappointed not to have the opportunity to work with renowned Baroque and Classical specialist Bernard Labadie on this occasion, and we wish him a speedy recovery from his surgery. It is however fortunate Maxim has been able to step in, giving Scottish audiences the opportunity to see him in action prior to his first season as Principal Conductor in the 2019/20 Season.”
