Hirta (first live performance)
Farewell to Stromness
New work (world premiere)
This Scottish folk-inspired concert features works by Sir James MacMillan and Peter Maxwell Davies, including the first live performance of MacMillan’s Hirta, an arrangement of a folk song from St Kilda. A new work by the winner of Britten Sinfonia’s OPUS2018 competition for unpublished composers will also receive its world premiere, the composer having been mentored by James MacMillan.
You can come to the OPUS2018 finalists workshop for free, where Sir James MacMillan will be mentoring shortlisted composers.
