American conductor Allan Scott at Radio Broadcasting Hall

“Allan R. Scott has set out to bring music closer to the people and, if his music is as contaminating as his pre­sence, then it is only a matter of time”. This is merely one of the praises heaped on the young conductor Allan R. Scott, who will conduct the Romanian Radio Chamber Orchestra tonight. In tonight’s concert, the public will have a chance to listen to works rarely played in Romanian concert halls, such as the Hebrides Overture, by F. Mendels­sohn-Bartholdy, the Concerto no. 1 in C major for piano and orchestra, op, 15, and Symphony No. 2 in D major, op. 36, by Ludwig van Beethoven. Allan R. Scott is a representative of the most dynamic sample of young musicians in North America. As of 2003, Allan R. Scott has acted as the musical director of the “Helena Symphony” (Montana) joint orchestra and choir. Scott conducted dozens of premieres and presented before the public a wide range of symphonic integrals, out of which his favourite remains the Mahler’s Sympho­nies Integral, which he will conclude, in 2012, with Symphony No. 8. For this season, he has lined up several appearances as guest conductor of ensembles like the Wilmington Ballet Company, the Christchurch Symphony in New Zealand, the Ogontz Music Festival Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra Society. In tonight’s Radio Chamber Orchestra concert he will share the stage with the pianist Horia Maxim. Tickets can be found at the Radio Broadcasting Hall and in the Eventim network, in Germanos, Vodafone and Orange shops, in Carturesti and Humanitas bookshops, and, online, on www.eventim.ro.
