Two Elgar masterpieces frame two Scottish works: the Second Percussion Concerto by James MacMillan, a colourful work brimming with energy and vitality, in which the soloist is given the opportunity to display truly breath taking virtuosity, and the irresistibly evocative Land Of The Mountain And The Flood by Hamish MacCunn. With their mysterious hidden theme, Elgar’s Enigma Variations paint portraits of the composer’s friends and loved ones. The music sparkles with humour, melodic invention and orchestral flair, reaching profound emotional depths in the deeply-moving nobility of ‘Nimrod’.
