Experience Baroque music at its grandest and most exuberant —as well as more recent works inspired by all its splendour and fantasy.
SCO Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev is renowned for his flamboyant, authentically conceived performances of early music, and he’s both conductor and soloist in this lavish concert.
Vivaldi pits four violins, then a whole panoply of mandolins, lutes, violins, recorders and more against his orchestra in two of his era’s most extravagant concertos. Grieg brings a distinctively homespun, Nordic flavour to Baroque dances in his charming Holberg Suite, while Hindemith reimagines ancient French dances for a modern orchestra. Polish composer Górecki, meanwhile, conjures up a tour de force of intense expression in his gripping Harpsichord Concerto.
