    Classical with a Twist (2)

    7:00 pmThe Stage at the Old Theatre Deli

    Informality, intimacy, wit and good humour are the hallmarks of our concerts in this 18th century theatre. One audience member has said: “We really valued the introduction to each piece and enjoyed being able to witness the interaction between players”. The programme showcases our virtuoso players and singers, including a chance to get ‘up close and personal’ with the Principal Flute of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Principal Trombone of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Close harmony after the interval comes courtesy of one of the UK’s leading arrangers, and Festival regular, Jim Clements.

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Flute Quartet in D Major K.285
    Luciano Berio Sequenza V for Trombone
