Pre concert talk 6.30pm, concert begins at 7.30pm.

Debussy - Marche écossaise sur un thème populaire
MacMillan - Veni, veni, Emmanuel
Mendelssohn - Symphony No 3 in A minor, Op 56, “The Scottish”

Marc Taddei - conductor
Claire Edwardes - percussion

Debussy’s Écossaise gives a sophisticated treatment to the robust rhythms of Scottish folk melodies, with their hardy sounds of the pipes and drums.

VWO is proud to present charismatic young Australian percussionist Claire Edwardes as soloist in James MacMillan’s popular percussion concerto. Orchestra and soloist converse in fast, physical music as Macmillan weaves material from 15th century French Advent plainchant into a musical exploration of the Advent message.

During his European tour at the age of 20, Mendelssohn was inspired by the moody historic landscape of Holyrood Castle. Ten years later his atmospheric first sketches ripened into this lively, dramatic “Scottish” symphony.

“We play around with a Scottish theme here: two works with a Scottish inspiration and one of the most popular contemporary pieces by Scottish composer, James MacMillan. To play this post-modern masterpiece we are delighted to present the New Zealand debut of Claire Edwardes – an astonishing artist who is one of the most important percussionists working today.” – Marc Taddei, Music Director
