Repertoire ‘Passion’ from ‘Action-Passion-Illusion’, by Erkki-Sven Tüür; Ophelia, by Karine Polwart; Small Consolation, by Karine Polwart; The Lost Words Blessing, by Karine Polwart; Tinsel Show, by Karine Polwart; Terminal Star, by Karine Polwart

As the dark days of winter open out, Seek The Light, in association with Celtic Connections, offers a programme of music and song suffused with light, lyricism and hope. Finnish firebrand Pekka Kuusisto directs the SCO from the violin. He is joined by award-winning folksinger and songwriter Karine Polwart, and her bandmates Steven Polwart and Inge Thomson, in a selection of songs orchestrated by Pippa Murphy. Illuminated by supernovae, summer-seeking birds and nature spells, Karine’s songs are interwoven with Sibelius’ virtuosic and haunting Six Humoresques for solo violin and chamber orchestra.
