Scotland loses third conductor in a week

After yesterday’s upheavals at the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, now it’s the Scottish Chamber Orchestra that has to rustle up a substitute baton out of the blue:

We regret to announce that Emmanuel Krivine is very sadly unable to join us for this week’s concerts, due to ill health.

We are delighted that young American conductor Case Scaglione is able to step in, keeping the programme as advertised.

We look forward to seeing you at the concerts – please join us in wishing Emmanuel a speedy recovery.


Scaglione, an Alan Gilbert protégé at the New York Phil, is chief conductor of the Württemberg chamber orchestra in Heilbronn. This is his UK debut. He has a British agent, Linda Marks at HP.
