Shaker Loops (24')
Brandenburg Concerto No 5, BWV 1050 (21')
Serenade in B-Flat, K 361 'Gran Partita' (44’)
Maxim Emelyanychev showcases the exceptional talents of the SCO’s string and wind players – both separately and together – in this striking concert bringing together ancient and modern.
With its extraordinary colours and glorious invention, Mozart’s ‘Gran Partita’ takes the humble wind serenade to unprecedented heights, its gathering of twelve wind players and one double bassist delivering captivating melodies of almost symphonic grandeur.
On the other hand, John Adams’ glistening minimalist masterpiece Shaker Loops charms and inspires with its delirious web of scurrying strings and propulsive energy.
In between, Emelyanychev is himself soloist in Bach’s deliciously entertaining Fifth Brandenburg Concerto.
