Incorporating elements of folk and popular music from around the world, their performances will include Gershwin’s jazz-infused Rhapsody in Blue, Ravel’s famous Bolero, and Amy Dickson’s gorgeous transcription of Philip Glass’s shimmering violin sonata, alongside a new Music Network commission by Ronan Guilfoyle.
Listen and enjoy, as metal, wood and string alchemize in the hands of these highly accomplished musicians, to produce an extraordinary musical soundscape of breath-taking beauty.
