SCO: Benedetti – Vivaldi's Four Seasons

Scotland's favourite violinist plays everyone's favourite work by Vivaldi, as well as the less-well-known Concerto in D 'Il Grosso Mogul' RV 208. Also on the bill are Gluck's Overture, Ballet and Chaconne from Orfeo ed Eurydice and Rameau's Suite from Les Paladins. Christian Curnyn directs from the harpsichord.

SCO Season 2011-12 Benedetti: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Thursday 27 April 7.30pm

Gluck - Overture, Ballet and Chaconne from Orfeo ed Eurydice Vivaldi - Concerto in D ‘Il Grosso Mogul’ RV 208 Rameau - Suite from Les Paladins Vivaldi - The Four Seasons

Christian Curnyn Harpsichord/Director Nicola Benedetti Violin

A baroque extravaganza of exotica and virtuosity starring Scotland’s favourite violinist. Benedetti is exploring the Vivaldi repertoire at the moment, and here she juxtaposes his most famous set of concerti with a scintillating rarity: Il Grosso Mogul. No-one knows where the nickname comes from (and we are pretty sure Vivaldi had no links to Delhi royalty), but its suggestion of oriental brilliance is picked up in the rest of this colourful programme with Rameau’s sensational dances from Les Paladins.
