Forever Folk

Friday 5th October 2018 | 7.30pm
Guildhall Theatre

 
Directed by Benedict Holland
 
Bartok             Romanian Dances
Arutiunian       Violin Concerto (soloist Benedict Holland)
Holst               St. Paul’s Suite
Grieg               Holberg Suite

Sinfonia Viva lights up Derby Folk Festival with an invitation to the dance. Bartók raids his folk music collection; Arutiunian taps into his Armenian heritage; Holst gives his school orchestra some jigs to play (throwing in ‘Greensleeves’ for good measure); Grieg salutes a great Scandinavian playwright with a suite of 18th-century-style dances – all guaranteed to get your feet tapping!
