In November, two British musicians will be performing with ERSO – conductor Martyn Brabbins and soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn. Brabbins is the music director of the English National Opera and a lecturer of conducting at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. He has had a long career as an opera conductor and has also conducted hundreds of new works by British composers around the world.
The highlights of Elizabeth Llewellyin’s 2022/23 concert season included the title role in Richard Strauss’s opera Ariadne Naxosel at the Leeds Grand Theatre & Opera House and Strauss’s cycle Four Last Songs as performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The latter will also be performed during the autumn concert with ERSO. Brabbins will also direct Jean Sibelius’s Kalevala-based symphonic poem Tapiola and Symphony No. 5 by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
