About this concert
This programme includes works from Alison Balsom's latest CD of Italian concertos, recorded with the Scottish Ensemble, as well as the world première of a new commission for Balsom and the Ensemble by James MacMillan. The new work is framed by the rarely performed Variations on 'Sellenger's Round' (also known as the Aldeburgh Variations) and Tippett's homage to Corelli.
