Airs Jigs and Reels
Airs Jigs & Reels is a brilliant new work for string trio, commissioned by Ensemble Perpetuo as a partner work to Bach’s iconic Goldberg Variations. Scottish musicians Aidan O’Rourke, Alasdair Nicolson, Ailie Robertson, David Fennessy and Donald Grant bring an exciting mix of classical and traditional influences to the new trio. The premiere will be at St. Magnus International Festival in June 2018 and Perpetuo can’t wait to perform it around the country.
