Nicola and the Orchestra perform a lively baroque programme including Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and the rare Il Grosso Mogul. Rameau’s sensational dances from his comic opera Les Paladins and the Overture, Ballet and Chaconne from Gluck’s Orfeo and Euridice complete the evening. All concerts are now sold out but make sure to tune in to BBC Radio 3 for the live broadcast of Friday’s concert from City Halls, Glasgow at 7:30pm.
Watch our video to see Nicola discuss playing with the SCO while on tour together in the summer 2010:
Following the hugely successful four-date tour across the South of Scotland, Nicola and the Orchestra recorded Italia, which was released in 2011 to great critical acclaim:
“…the entire performance is exhilarating…the Scottish Chamber Orchestra supports Nicola Benedetti with passion and searing virtuosity”. ***** Classic FM
Italia is available at our concerts and from our online shop.
