“The Scottish Chamber Orchestra returns to Stirling Castle for their annual summer concert with the truly talented, young, French conductor Alexandre Bloch. The programme is sure to sparkle with energy, enthusiasm and summer warmth.
Joining the SCO is Scottish guitarist Sean Shibe. He has been described as “a prodigious technician and supremely expressive player”. A recent first class honours graduate from Scotland’s Conservatoire, Sean is a trailblazer for classical guitar: he is the first guitarist to be admitted to the prestigious BBC New Generation Artists Scheme, and the only solo guitarist to have received a Borletti-Buitoni Fellowship.”
“The young and talented Alexandre Bloch conducts the SCO in a sublime programme of music. Bloch opens the concert with Ravel’s six movement work Le Tombeau de Couperin, followed by Rodrigo’s magical Fantasia para un gentilhombre with talented guitarist Sean Shibe as soloist. Rossini’s wonderful overture from The Italian girl in Algiers and the ever-popular Mozart Symphony No 38 ‘Prague’ completes this perfect summer evening of entertainment.” (all information taken directly from websites Historic Scotland and Scottish Chamber Orchestra).
