The Baillie Fantasias
AboutShane Lestideau and the inimitable Donald Nicolson showcase the Scottish music of the Baillie violinists. These works are as peaty as they are virtuosic and include the trademark Baillie Fantasias and Scotch Selections for violin and piano. This charming 19thC collection will dazzle you with its cadenzas, harmonics, double-stopping and dance sets. Shane Lestideau will perform on Robert Ballantyne Baillie’s own violin – a Carl Schneider model from 1777.
