Scottish Chamber Orchestra (Strings) in Portree on Friday 20th July 2018

Benjamin Marquise Gilmore violin / director
Matthew Wadsworth theorbo
SCO Strings

Chacony in G minor

Capriol Suite

Theorbo Concerto (UK Premiere)

Concerto Grosso op 5 No 12 ‘La Folia’

String Symphony in B minor

Holberg Suite op.40

Ancient styles with bold modern flavours: meetings between the old and the new thread through this stimulating concert directed by SCO Leader Benjamin Marquise Gilmore. Peter Warlock makes a modern twist on 16th-century themes in his charming Capriol Suite, while Grieg combines the Baroque invention of Bach, Handel and Scarlatti with a distinctive Nordic folk twang in his buoyant Holberg Suite. The ancient theorbo is in the spotlight for British composer Stephen Goss’s new Concerto, performed by the spectacular Matthew Wadsworth – and even Geminiani gets in on the act by taking his teacher Corelli’s already virtuosic Concerto Grosso and making it even more ingenious and brilliant.
