    Classical Music lovers - you can get a fix in lockdown

    The Royal Scottish National Orchestra at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall is where we used to go at weekends. Usually great evenings out.

    If any of you fancy watching a digital concert there are a number for free on you tube from last years Season they fortunately recorded in the main hall before lockdown.

    Usually half a normal night at between 40 - 60 mins, with some eminent conductors and soloists - quite a lot of Beethoven in the others

    Mahler https://youtu.be/G5veX4Blbzo
    Debussy 1 Sir Roger Norrington conducting https://youtu.be/NTRi8YrL0zM
    Saint Saens Organ symphony No 3 conductor Neeme Jarvi https://youtu.be/fZ_eZUgbzFA

    Google “rsno friday night club youtube”. For the full list

    They have now launched a Digital Season of 10 socially distanced and longer concerts in October in their rehearsal room which cost £9.50 each or £90 for all 10. Released every 2 weeks but all available for the rest of the season

    Nice to hear the orchestra and conductors speaking about how much it means to them.

    Fed up with lock down why not join the 4000 subscribers and try some.

    You’re welcome 59
    Enjoy

    Sir Roger is 86 and a perfectionist who sets the orchestra up as it was when the music was written so you get the original experience. Eg First and second violins on opposite sides of the orchestra.
    Here’s Eroica with him https://youtu.be/3_8K8bVNF8k

    Neeme is 83 and was principal conductor here in the 80s.

    Gustav Holst played Second Trombone for the RSNO from 1900 to 1904

    "......Gustav Holst played Second Trombone for the RSNO from 1900 to 1904!

    Aye, but as an ex-trombone player myself, I can assure you that Holst was on another planet or seven.

    I'll certainly be checking it out over the weekend OC.

    Have you got a favorite composer? Mines Beethoven.

    I’m not musical at all, but like most Beethoven and Tchaikovsky most organ music, that Saint Saens being the best, and I like to think I may be related to Elgar, my great grandmother was an Elgar.

    Elgar, eh? What an enigma.

    A little know fact, but Elgar was a stauch Wolves fan and he wrote the first ever footy chant.

    It was called, "He banged the leather for goal"
