. 1 I The Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s new season may have just started (the day beiore our first lssuei), but that doesn't mean to say that the most Interesting ol their 85/86 ideas has passed iar irom it. It's not so much the usual good sprinkling but rather a generous pouring oi tamous names making guest appearances with the SCO this year. (Teresa Berganza, The Kings Singers, Simon Hattie, Alired Grendel, Marisa Robles, Peter Maxwell Davies, Jorge Bolet, Mltsulto Uchlda . . .), some oi them and we trust this is not an economy measure due to restrained ilnances - not only playing, but conducting too. One such is Australian born horn player Barry Tuckwell who, as part oi the orchestra’s policy not just to tour abroad, joins the SCO tor a UK

This season the Scottish Chamber Orchestra will give more concerts than it ever has before in Glasgow. some on Fridays and some on Sundays. of which this is the first and ifyou’re a Beethoven freak. then this is the one for you.

Glasgow and Edinburgh share the same programme oi ‘pop' classics Mozart's Horn Concerto No 3 in E llat, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony and the Hebrides Overture by Mendelssohn. Still, it’ll be interesting to see it Mr Tuckwell's results with the baton are anything as good as those with his horn, which one German critic summed up by saying ‘li the hunter had ever been able to play like this, the deer would have died lrom

, ecstasy’. Wonderwhathe'ildoto an
