Doubles explores the idea of conflict and resolution through duets featuring single players, ensembles and orchestras divided antiphonally. OOTS presents a wildly oscillating centrifuge of international repertoire in which we veer from the bizarre early baroque of Heinrich Biber’s Battalia via Steve Reich’s shimmering New York minimalism through to the sublimated tango confrontation of Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov’s Last Round. The ever-popular Craig Ogden returns to perform two double concertos with Serbian accordionist Miloš Milivojević: Piazzolla’s stripped back and brooding concerto and a new work by jazz pianist/baroque harpsichordist David Gordon. The concert concludes with Michael Tippett’s uplifting and life-affirming Concerto for Double String Orchestra which combines the clarity of early classical music with the pathos of the blues.
