Event Details

In this conert Aberdeen Sinfonietta features works by Rossini, Bruch (Violin Concerto No.1 with soloist Gina McCormack) and Dvorak (Symphony No.4) plus one of John McLeod’s most popular works – ‘Hebridean Dances’. This suite of dances takes several tunes and songs from the Hebridean islands and transforms them into the composer’s contemporary idiom, hoping along the way also to preserve their character, melodic richness and abundant energy.
