Concert information

The last and most ambitious of Stuart MacRae’s three magnificent Lammermuir Festival commissions based on the Prometheus myth is a work for voices and orchestra which will make dramatic use of the space in Haddington’s great mediaeval parish church. So does Vaughan Williams’s rich-toned fantasia, to magical effect, with a solo quartet placed far from the rest of the strings. Under the acclaimed young English conductor Matthew Halls, the BBC SSO will demonstrate its close affinity with Sibelius in his life-affirming Fifth Symphony.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3. It is promoted by The Lammermuir Festival/The Lamp of Lothian Trust.
