From waltzes to tangos, marches to tarantellas: join us for a joyful celebration of music written to make us move.

Dance Music is a joyful sashay through a host of pieces written with our feet in mind; an assortment of deliciously rhythmic music from across centuries, continents and traditions.

Piazzolla’s undeniably infectious take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons pulsates with the colour of Latin America. In this special arrangement, award-winning violinist Malin Broman (Swedish Musica Vitae / Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra) is joined by one of Europe’s leading double bassists, Rick Stotijn, for a performance of fiery solos and crackling rhythmic brio.

Our accompanying selection of waltzes, tangos and more includes the breathless tarantella of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden and lively dances from Purcell’s Fairy Queen suite as well as Britten and Schulhoff’s contemporary spin on these historic styles…

Sándor Veress
