Thomas Søndergård CONDUCTOR
Catriona Morison MEZZO-SOPRANO
‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay!’ And taking his cue from those thunderous words, Sergei Rachmaninov launches a First Symphony like no other. Dark, stormy and burning with unrequited passion, it’s heady stuff, and a gripping contrast to Grieg’s much-loved Peer Gynt. RSNO Music Director Thomas Søndergård is reunited on stage with Scottish mezzo Catriona Morison – fresh from her triumph in 2017’s Cardiff Singer of the World – in Ravel’s exquisite Shéhérazade.
