Florence-born violinist Lorenza Borrani – Leader of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe since 2008 – directs the SCO from the violin in a concert that’s sure to intrigue and inspire.
Beethoven’s Seventh is his most dance-like Symphony, propelled from start to finish by boisterous rhythmic energy, while Mahler recast the same composer’s intensely dramatic ‘Serioso’ Quartet across the richer colours of a string orchestra.
To begin, Borrani’s compatriot Bruno Maderna looks back to music from the Renaissance with his delightful 'Odhecaton' Suite.
