“I am thrilled to be performing this historic work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as part of their European tour. Past performances of the work have included speakers of high esteem, and I am delighted to be joining that list. I look forward to performing with the CSO as they make their debut performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, BBC Proms and San Sebastián’s Musical Fortnight festival.” – Charles Dance OBE
Lincoln Portrait, Copland’s tribute to the former US President, was premiered by the CSO in 1942 at the height of World War II, and retains a special significance for the orchestra, having been performed by many notable orators throughout the last century. The ‘tone poem’ features extracts of Lincoln’s speeches, accompanied by a full symphony orchestra in a dramatic and poignant interpretation.

Charles Dance OBE was formerly a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and has subsequently become a household name among the British acting establishment. His numerous film roles include Gosford Park (2001), The Imitation Game (2014), Me Before You (2016) and Ghostbusters (2016). More recently, Dance starred as Tywin Lannister in HBO’s Game of Thrones, before meeting his (**spoilers**) death at the hands of his son, Tyrion.
