JANACEK Suite for Strings
VERESS Transylvanian Dances
BOTTESINI Concerto alla Mendelssohn
Benjamin Marquise Gilmore director/violin
Nikita Naumov double bass
It’s a rare occasion for bass players to step forward into the spotlight as a concert soloist, as our superb Principal Double Bass Nikita Naumov does here! Composer Giovanni Bottesini – known as “Paganini of the Double Bass” – was instrumental to extending the capabilities of the double bass and Nikita’s performance will be a sure-fire demonstration of this.
Across the evening, Benjamin Marquise Gilmore dynamically leads the SCO Strings in bohemian rhapsodies of the folk-inspired Hungarian and Czech musical tradition.
