A unique album from one of Scotland’s most dynamic and versatile groups - the Scottish Ensemble is a tight-knit band of outstanding string players from around Europe who perform regularly together under Artistic Director, Jonathan Morton. This disc - one of their first solo releases following accalimed discs with artists such as Alison Balsom and Toby Spence - contrasts Vivaldi’s timeless Four Seasons with Piazzolla together like this underlines the meteorological and cultural differences between Mediteranean Europe and the heart of South America. To have them performed side by side creates a fascinating programme of similarities and contrasts.

 

"...The playing standard is excellent, with the strings of the Scottish Ensemble finding a light and suitably transparent texture in the Vivaldi, matched by bright , stylish solos from Jonathan Morton ..."

Lindsay Kemp - Gramophone - July 2011
