Repertoire Music of Gaity, by Bruno Maderna; Movements from 'Odhecaton' Suites Nos 1 and 2, by Bruno Maderna
Charismatic Florence-born violinist Lorenza Borrani – Leader of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe since 2008 – makes her debut with the SCO in music by an unconventional pairing of composers, but one that’s sure to delight and inspire.
It’s no coincidence that Borrani has chosen two Haydn symphonies in the key of C - both are bright and brilliant. No 56 was the pinnacle of his symphonic achievements when he wrote it, and No 90 home to one of the composer’s most outrageous musical jokes.
Borrani’s compatriot Bruno Maderna was an uncompromising modernist, but also a much-loved, larger-than-life composer who created much of his music simply for joy and entertainment. His Music of Gaity is sure to raise a smile with its witty orchestral rethinks of 17th Century English keyboard music, while his 'Odhecaton' Suites look even further back to the Renaissance for their brilliantly energetic, sparkling creations.
