Notes & Reviews:

A unique disc 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 acclaimed discs with artists such as Alison Balsom and Toby Spence - contrasts Vivaldi's timeless Four Seasons with Piazzolla's tango-inspired The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires. Combining Vivaldi and Piazzola together like this underlines the meteorological and cultural differences between Mediterranean Europe and the heart of South America. To have them performed side by side creates a fascinating program of similarities and contrasts.
