In this concert from the Festival Saint Denis, bass-baritone Bryn Terfel joins forces with gaïta-player and flautist Carlos Núñez and the Orchestre National de Bretagne under Grant Llewellyn for a special exploration of Beethoven's arrangements of Scottish, Irish and Welsh folk songs. The composer made his arrangements of the folk songs for voice and piano trio, dressing them up for 19th-century salon, but here – in new arrangements by Benoît Menut and Pierre Chépélov – they come full circle to be reconnected with their Celtic origins.
