Alpesh Chauhan is replacing Donald Runnicles for concerts with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Glasgow and Aberdeen this week. The programme is centred around Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15, which is preceded by Janáček’s Sinfonietta and Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1, featuring “titan” of the piano Garrick Ohlsson.

This engagement marks Alpesh’s début with the orchestra. Currently Assistant Conductor at the City of Birmingham Orchestra in a post that was especially created for him, Alpesh has had an extraordinary season that has seen him début with Netherlands Symphony and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestras, Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini in Parma as well as with Kymi Sinfonietta.
