Antonio Vivaldi Concerto Grosso in G minor
Arcangelo Corelli Concerto Grosso in E flat major
Heinrich Biber Rosary Sonata No. 6 in C minor
with guest director Jonathan Cohen
Cellist, conductor, keyboardist and director of Arcangelo
The music of the Baroque era is a celebration of virtuosity: flush with ornamentation, laced with ostentation and thick with harmony. For this special concert, Scotland's pioneering string orchestra Scottish Ensemble and acclaimed harpsichordist Jonathan Cohen (Arcangelo) will perform a selection of exuberant chamber pieces - at the same time as exploring how our surroundings might change the way we listen.
Performing the first half of the concert in one venue before moving to another for the second half, you'll experience vivacious concerti by Corelli, Locatelli and Vivaldi, and violin sonatas by Corelli and Biber, in contrasting spaces. Guided by Cohen's passion and expertise, whether in the cosy 'chamber' or the ceremonial church, the common factor will be the verve and flair of this rich period of music.
Transport will be provided on the night for anyone unable to walk between venues. Please call 0141 332 4747 or email email@example.com to make arrangements
