CHOPIN Two Nocturnes Op.55 - for piano
JUDITH WEIR Mountain Airs - for flute, oboe and clarinet
JAMES MACMILLAN Memento - for string quartet
MENDELSSOHN Piano Trio in D Minor Op.49
Leading pianist Viv McLean joins Ensemble 360 for a concert celebrating music written in, and inspired by, Scotland.
Scottish folk music has often inspired Judith Weir, and Mountain Airs is, according to the composer, “a free adaptation of two traditional Scottish melodies.”
Scottish composer James MacMillan’s Memento for string quartet is a tender and delicate piece based on Gaelic lament music and Hebridean psalm-singing.
Mendelssohn famously visited Scotland in 1829 and the impression made on him by the scenery was to remain with him throughout his life. His Op.49 is one of the most popular pieces in chamber music repertoire – passionate, flamboyant and full of rhythmic energy.
