Dance Music

Piazzolla, Schubert and Purcell with guest director and violinist Malin Broman

From waltzes to tangos, marches to tarantellas: join us for a joyful celebration of music written to make us move.

Four Seasons of Buenos Aires

and extracts from

Combining the pleasures of listening to music with the satisfaction of moving our bodies is one of humanity’s oldest rituals – and one which has quite happily resulted in some of the most rhythmic and compelling music across the globe, and throughout history.
