TARTAN AND TANGO!
Two Scots - accordionist James Crabb and violinist (and RTÉ NSO co-leader) Elaine Clark - and the Bulgarian guitarist George Vassilev showcase the glorious vitality of the accordion in traditional Scottish music and new works from Argentina, the home of the tango, courtesy of Tomás Gubitsch's vivacious Villa Luro and two virtuosic works by Ástor Piazzolla. Mendelssohn's tune-filled Third Symphony offers a picture-postcard tribute to the land of tartan, before we head towards the New World for Barber's searingly beautiful Adagio for Strings.
