WHAT'S ON / Scottish Ensemble: Music is Power

Scottish Ensemble: Music is Power

16 February 2017 at 7:30pm

Alina Ibragimova: violin

Mendelssohn: Sinfonia No. 6 in E flat major, MWV N6
Arvo Pärt: Silouan’s Song
Hartmann: Concerto Funebre
Mendelssohn: Sinfonia No. 10 in B minor, MWV N10
Peteris Vasks: Viatore
Bach: Violin Concerto in E major, BWV 1042

Mendelssohn’s music was notoriously banned in 1936 by a Nazi regime which labelled the Jewish composer “a dangerous accident of musical history”. Hartmann’s Concerto Funebre, dashed off in the autumn of 1939, represents the contrasting hope and hopelessness of a country plunged into war.

Arvo Pärt and Peteris Vasks use their music as a vehicle for spiritual questioning, to transcendent effect, and Bach’s ebullient E major concerto is a testament to the pure, uplifting joy of melody and harmony.

Together with world-renowned Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova, join us for an exploration of the political, spiritual and emotional power of music.
