What you're about to hear from a

mere 14-year-old is remarkable.

Remarkable though it may sound, this October will mark the start of what is only the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's fifteenth season since it began.

Already firmly established as a premier international orchestra, the achievements of the SCO in such a short space of time are a tribute to the commitment, enthusiasm and sheer musicianship of its members.

They are also a tribute to the wealth of good music from which this young orchestra draws its inspiration and repertoire.

The 1988/89 season promises a series of concerts which will display the SCO’s astonishing musical maturity to the full.

Following the success of last year the principal conductor for the forthcoming season—his second with the orchestra-will be the lively young Finn, Jukka-Pekka Saraste. The SCO's musical journey will take you through everything from stirring renditions of the popular classics to exciting performances of new works by major living composers.

To add to the excitement, there will be guest appearances by musicians of world-renown— musicians whose very presence reflects the high musical esteem in which the SCO is held.

Musicians like James Galway.

Katia and Marielle Labéque. Benjamin Luxon.

Paul Tortelier. Hakan Hardenburger.

John Ogdon.

However well or little you know their names now, you will have come to know them—and love them all-by the end of the season.

More remarkable-sounding- when you subscribe. You'll find individual concert prices for our 15th birthday season surprisingly reasonable. Even more so when you subscribe.

By committing yourself in advance to just a few concerts, you can enjoy substantial savings on stated concert prices. And have the pick of the seats in the house.

If hearing good music is a priority with you, why pay more for the privilege?
