About the performance
Composer JS Bach still has plenty to teach us about the joys of new music.

Accordion virtuoso James Crabb is known for his versatile musicianship and has appeared with the London Philharmonic, BBC Scottish and the MSO.

MSO Concertmaster Sophie Rowell leads the Orchestra through this concert, which sees the genius of Bach refashioned.

Aulis Sallinen’s Barrabas Variations also features accordion as the solo instrument. A melancholy work that builds from a frenetic atmosphere, Barrabas Variations features trills and repeated rhythms to a haunting, wistful conclusion.

Sophie Rowell leads the MSO in Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 and Concerto in A minor, highlighting the composer’s mastery of harmony and counterpoint.

Contrasting a mournful violin line with the energy of the accordion, Antonio Agri’s Desde Adentro will profile Crabb’s passion and acclaimed authority of his instrument, before Rowell takes over for Grieg’s Holberg Suite.
