    Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Wind Soloists

  • When
    28 June 20:00 - 22:00
    Hosted by:
  • A delightful programme of music chosen and played by the acclaimed SCO Wind Soloists. Raff has been sadly overshadowed since his death, but if you love joyful, zesty music like Mendelssohn’s Octet you will greatly enjoy his Sinfonietta. Mozart’s Serenade is its dark twin: as operatic and dramatic as Raff is genial. Francaix cannot help but charm his audience, and his quartet is full of panache and a delightful joie de vivre. Sally Beamish’s enchanting piece gives every member of its quintet a chance to evoke a specific bird solo - so who will be the partridge, lapwing, linnet, barn owl or bullfinch? Please join us and find out.
