Afternoon Performance - MacMillan Conducts MacMillan

City Halls
Glasgow
Scotland

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Annelien Van Wauwe clarinet (BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist)
James MacMillan conductor

Sir James MacMillan isn’t just one of the most significant artists working in Scotland today: he’s a creative figure of international importance. Any premiere by MacMillan is a major occasion, but his Fourth Symphony takes the Scottish renaissance composer Robert Carver as a starting point for a musical journey of far-reaching power and beauty. “MacMillan’s new symphony holds a candle to Mahler” wrote The Arts Desk of the world premiere in 2015; in this first Scottish performance, MacMillan himself conducts – and shares the stage with young Dutch clarinet star Annelien Van Wauwe in Finzi’s lovely concerto, and the cosmic vision of an elder statesman amongst Scottish composers, John Maxwell Geddes who celebrates his 75th birthday this year.
