Thea Musgrave | Turbulent Landscapes (Scottish premiere)…
Vaughan Williams | A Sea Symphony
Vaughan Williams’s epic paean to the power and spirituality of the sea brings together a huge ensemble for one of his most opulent, captivating creations. Setting mystical verse by Walt Whitman, it’s both a celebration of the might of the ocean, and a mystical glimpse into the infinite.
Here we also celebrate the 90th birthday of one of Scotland’s most internationally renowned composers, Thea Musgrave, with her remarkable Turbulent Landscapes, a powerful musical journey through six vivid land and seascapes by J. M. W. Turner.
