Arnold’s Four Scottish Dances are inspired by folk tunes and feature a melody from one of Scotland’s national treasures Robert Burns. Pure escapism, these light-hearted dances evocatively pull the senses as a scenic panorama unfolds.

With fanfare flourishes, coloured orchestration and lush harmonies, Debussy’s Scottish March on a Popular Theme follows.

Jack Liebeck performs Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1. The dazzling virtuosic passages, the swelling sound of passion and intensity building towards the climactic finale - this concerto showcases the delicate abundant beauty of the string instruments, making the violin sing with every note.

Beautifully capturing each section of his Scottish tour, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3 transports you to the barren landscapes of the heather-strewn hills. Hear the dark and stormy weather met on the bleak hills until finally, the sun erupts on the mountain peaks as the full orchestra is finally unleashed in a radiant third movement.
