The Scottish Ensemble introduces your guide, Polish-born Bartosz Woroch – a gifted violinist specialising in chamber and solo violin – who will take his audience across Eastern Europe on a musical journey of discovery.
To Poland - where Grazyna Bacewicz, one of the country’s first female composers, wrote her much-lauded 1948 concerto, which fuses tradition and modernity with vivacious gusto, energy, and inventive flair.
To France - where Chopin wrote Opus 37, No.2 and Opus 55, No.1, performed now in this exquisite string orchestra arrangement (and SE commission) by David Matthews, who translates the delicate piano melodies into beautifully meandering lines for solo violin.
To the Czech Republic - to end the evening with one of Dvorák’s most well-known quintets, scored with double bass to create a deep, romantic richness.
