16 Danish Sinfonietta

, Start Time: 13:00, End Time: 14:00 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX

Exploring interesting corners of the chamber music repertoire this concert celebrates the soloistic virtuosity of the Danish Sinfonietta’s players. Britten’s arrangement of Purcell’s Chacony for Strings with its ever-repeating bass line has a gravity reflected in Nielsen’s Lament, created for the funeral of friend. The music of Françaix and Martinu bring a brightly coloured and joyous neoclassicism to the fore and the Nonet brings together strings and wind in an intriguing work by this Czech composer written in the year before he died.
