We kick off with the London premiere of a new Olympic Fanfare by Ayrshire-born James MacMillan. Nicola Benedetti is in the spotlight for Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave gives the tuba its moment with her postcard from Loch Ness, while both tonight’s ensembles come together for one of Respighi’s glamorous Roman spectaculars.
