Hartford - A Scottish Fantasy
Posted on: 2018-01-02
What: A Scottish Fantasy
Where: Belding Theater at The Bushnell, 166 Capitol Ave, Hartford, CT 06106
When: 1/19/2018 - 1/21/2018, Friday & Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 3pm
We are breaking out the bagpipes for 2018 with a concert of music inspired by the vibrant country of Scotland! Maxwell Davies' An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise is a vivid depiction of a joyous wedding celebration, gloriously concluding with a bagpiper performing in full Scottish regalia. Bruch's four-movement Scottish Fantasy, pays homage to Scottish folk melodies including "Auld Rob Morris," "The Dusty Miller," "I'm a'Doon for Lack o' Johnnie," and the patriotic anthem "Scots Wha Hae." Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 3, "Scottish," is the result of the composer's preoccupation with Scottish history, and his visit to the ruins of Holyrood Chapel in Edinburgh while on Grand Tour in 1829, calling to mind the wild romantic landscapes of the north, at the same time stormy and jubilant.
