Hear and Now: Stuart MacRae’s Earth

City Halls

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Stuart MacRae is the latest composer to pen a work specifically for the unique surroundings of Glasgow's Old Fruitmarket. Earth, inspired by themes of war, nature and interconnectedness, receives its World Premiere alongside two works related to Orkney's St Magnus Festival: fellow Scot and director of the festival Alasdair Nicolson's The Last Meeting, and Arne Gieshoff's Stanza which was a St Magnus commission. MacRae's World Premiere is matched by one from Andrew Simpson, whose Phantasmagoria completes an evening of electrifying new music.
