Musica Pacifica (CALIFORNIA)
This high-energy program of rousing folk and dance music from eighteenth-century England, Ireland and Scotland has something for everyone. Soulful tunes and merry jigs are juxtaposed with Purcell, Corelli and Vivaldi. The music of Scottish composers such as James Oswald, “Red Rob” Mackintosh, and Niel Gow defies categorization as either classical or folk. No matter your taste, this program will make you want to dance in the (a)isles!
