MacMillan conducts MacMillan

Sir James MacMillan has a long and fruitful relationship with both the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and the Edinburgh International Festival. To celebrate the International Festival’s 70th anniversary, he conducts three masterpieces of 20th-century music – all of which received their premieres at the International Festival.

MacMillan and the BBC SSO open with the lush invention of Tippett’s achingly beautiful tribute to Italian Baroque music, and they are joined by eminent Norwegian trumpeter Ole Edvard Antonsen for the glittering brilliance of MacMillan’s own trumpet concerto Epiclesis. They close with the wit and bright colours of Walton’s triumphant Second Symphony.
