Orchestral Masterworks: Sounds of Scotland

Royal College of Music, Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall, SW7 2BS, [Venue Details]

The RCM Philharmonic brings the sounds of Scotland to the stage in this inspiring concert, featuring a musical depiction of the Hebrides and a concerto by Scottish composer James MacMillan.

Mendelssohn's enduring programmatic sketch of the famous northern archipelago was inspired by a trip made by the composer in 1829. The lyrical melody featured throughout the overture captures the stormy beauty of landmarks like Fingal's Cave on the island of Staffa.

The orchestra is also joined by RCM Concerto Competition winner Adam Lee for James MacMillan's suspenseful Ninian, which was premiered in 1997 as part of the celebrations of the Year of Ninian, one of the founding fathers of Christianity in Scotland.
