Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Maxim's Baroque Inspirations with Maxim Emelyanychev (conductor/harpsichord), Katherine Spencer (chalumeau), William Stafford (chalumeau) - £6-20

Corelli: Concerto Grosso in B-flat, op. 6, no. 11
Telemann: Concerto in D minor for two Chalumeaux
Bach: Triple Concerto in D, BWV 1064R
Glass: Harpsichord Concerto
Respighi: Ancient Airs and Dances: Suite no. 1
Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis

Baroque music at its most flamboyant, alongside later sounds inspired by it — and the ideal
opportunity for Maxim Emelyanychev to raise the roof with his exuberant passions as both
conductor and harpsichord soloist.

Telemann introduces us to a forerunner of the clarinet in his soulful concerto, while Bach and Corelli's own concertos are shot through with propulsive energy and sparkling interplay.

Nearer our own times, Respighi makes Baroque lute tunes glitter all the more brightly in his kaleidoscopic orchestral reimaginings, while Glass and Vaughan Williams steer us towards
moving contemplation in their powerful, spiritual pieces.
