International Festival’s 2015 Concerts and Recitals announced
Today Festival Director Fergus Linehan has announced the programme for the classical music element of the International Festival
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, the programme features five performances involving the Chorus. These include the festival’s opening concert on Saturday 8 August, with powerful and romantic music from Richard Strauss and Johannes Brahms, conducted by Donald Runnicles.
Director Fergus Linehan said: ‘The flame which lit Edinburgh’s reputation as the world’s festival city was the international standard of concert programming and the unique qualities of the Usher Hall…..Launching the classical music concerts ahead of the full programme, allows us to shine a light on the scale of work and quality of artistry these musicians will bring to Edinburgh this year.”
