Making Waves: 30 Years of Scottish Composition
City Halls

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
James MacMillan conductor

As part of a day celebrating the BBC Performing Groups’ contribution to Radio 3’s 70 years of pioneering music and culture since the founding of the Third Programme, the BBC SSO presents an hour-long concert showcasing Scottish composition from the last three decades.

Stuart MacRae and Anna Meredith were composers associated with the BBC SSO between 1999 and 2006, so the concert opens with MacRae’s Stirling Choruses (a BBC Commission from 1999) and includes Meredith’s work fringeflower. Judith Weir’s Music, Untangled, meanwhile, is a work inspired in part by a traditional melody sung by women cloth-workers in Barra. The concert is conducted by Sir James MacMillan whose famous breakthrough work The Confession of Isobel Gowdie, another original commission for the BBC SSO and first performed at the BBC Proms in 1990, closes the concert.

Stuart MacRae : Stirling Choruses
Anna Meredith : fringeflower
Judith Weir : Music, Untangled
James MacMillan : The Confession of Isobel Gowdie
