Combining the pleasures of listening to music with the satisfaction of moving our bodies is one of humanity's oldest rituals – and one which has quite happily resulted in some of the most rhythmic and compelling music across the globe, and throughout history.
Dance Music is a joyful sashay through a host of pieces written with our feet in mind. Alongside Piazzolla's undeniably infectious take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, pulsating with the rhythms of Latin America, comes the breathless tarantella that ends Schubert’s Death and The Maiden and an assortment of other waltzes, marches, serenades and romances.
Leader of the Swedish Radio Orchestra, Malin Broman is an award-winning violinist with a particular passion for chamber music, and a desire to re-define the concert experience...
