Violinist Simone Lamsma
Handel Royal Fireworks Music
Experience the British Isles through three very different composers. Written for King George II, the ever-popular Music for Royal Fireworks makes for many a royal occasion. For something completely different: Carlos Kalmar welcomes rising-star violinist Simone Lamsma for Bruch’s highlands-inspired Scottish Fantasy. And composer Peter Maxwell Davies puts a nightcap on the evening with the drunken romp An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise—bagpipes included.
