Pärt Mozart-Adagio for Violin, Cello and Piano

Elegant refinement from Mozart and Haydn forms the graceful focus for Scottish Ensemble’s collaboration with acclaimed Perth-born pianist Alasdair Beatson.
He’s the soloist in Mozart’s brilliant, high-spirited Piano Concerto No.12, and he joins Scottish Ensemble Artistic Director, violinist Jonathan Morton, in Haydn’s witty Double Concerto in F. In between, two more recent composers provide commentaries on those two great Classical masters: Arvo Pärt in his mesmeric and profoundly moving Mozart-Adagio, and Alfred Schnittke in his theatrical and mischievously funny Moz-Art à la Haydn.
