Hebrides Ensemble

Hebrides Ensemble marks the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1 with a programme commemorating that era and its recurring themes of tragedy, loss, demoralisation, defiance and hope. Together, the pieces reflect the pre-war order and passion that turned to violent turmoil, and challenged our deepest human values.

Ned Rorem : War Scenes: ‘Night Battle’
Stuart MacRae : Parable
Igor Stravinsky : Three pieces for solo clarinet
Arthur Butterworth : Six Songs from A Shropshire Lad
Claude Debussy : Berceuse Heroique
Arnold Schonberg : Chamber Symphony No 1 Op 9 (arr. Webern)
Ned Rorem : War Scenes: ‘The real war will never get in the books’
