6 The Trondheim Soloists

, Start Time: 22:00, End Time: 23:10 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX

The string players of the Trondheim Soloists provide a late-night opportunity to hear the crisp and fresh arrangement of Bach’s keyboard work alongside the high romance and passion of Schoenberg’s early masterpiece – a real tour de force for any string orchestra. The darkly intense work is based on a poem that describes a man and woman walking through a moonlit wood.
