This week Donald Macleod visits Sally Beamish in her home near Loch Lomond, to talk to her about her work. Sally has been composing since she was a child but only set out on the path of professional composer after moving to Scotland in 1990, having already established a successful career as a viola player. Today she discusses her earliest commissions and how moving to Scotland, and motherhood, influenced her decision to become a composer.
