TURKISH DELIGHT AND TARTAN
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

TWO OF TODAY'S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER YOUNG TALENTS - VIOLINIST BAIBA SKRIDE AND CONDUCTOR MICHAEL FRANCIS - TEAM UP as our survey of Mozart's violin concertos continues with the 'Turkish', a magnificently colourful dialogue between soloist and orchestra brimming with wild exoticism.

Schnittke's Moz-Art à la Haydn takes playful delight in reworking a Mozart fragment with a liberal helping of Haydn for added humour.

Mendelssohn's glorious picture postcard of his travels in Scotland, the effusive and evocative Third Symphony, is every bit as rich and romantic as the Scottish Highlands.
