Schnittke’s Moz-Art à la Haydn brims with virtuosity, wit and flair. Schubert’s Rondo for Violin and Strings is a masterpiece – virtuosic, fresh, lyrical and imbued with love. Principals Christian Elliott and Malachy Robinson and their ICO colleagues then present the world premiere of Ian Wilson’s Seventh Seal – a new concerto for cello and double bass, commissioned by the ICO. Astor Piazzolla’s ‘tangoed’ Four Seasons of Buenos Aires depicts the seasonal moods of the city through jazzy rhythms and romantic violin solos that ooze excitement, propelling this work to a brilliant conclusion.
