WHAT'S ON / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: SCO and The Sixteen

MacMillan: Tryst
MacMillan: Stabat Mater
(Commissioned by the Genesis Foundation for Harry Christophers and The Sixteen: Scottish Premiere)

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.
