Scottish Chamber Orchestra: SCO and The Sixteen

Queens Hall
0131 668 2019

Sir James Macmillan: conductor (Tryst); Harry Christophers: conductor (Stabat Mater); The Sixteen

The glorious choral sound of The Sixteen captivates and inspires Sir James MacMillan and his latest major work for them is the climax of this special concert.

In the first half the composer himself conducts Tryst one of the very first pieces he wrote for the SCO back in the late 1980s. Inspired by his folksong of the same name, this is a showpiece that the Orchestra has performed to great effect all over the world.

COMPOSER INSIGHTS: 6.30pm Sir James MacMillan introduces his Stabat Mater in conversation with Svend Brown.

James MacMillan : Tryst
