An intimate journey with Scottish composers

Kings Place, London


London Sinfonietta returns to Kings Place, presenting an evening of music by Scottish composers exploring the idea of love and our deepest human need for connection.

Judith Weir’s evocative music sets the scene, before the Public World Premiere of a privately commissioned work Love Bade me Welcome by James MacMillan setting poetry about divine love by George Herbert.

Peter Maxwell DaviesHymn to Artemis Locheia is a rarely performed and virtuosic work for clarinet quintet, written as a celebration of the joy and exuberance between couples when new life is confirmed. MacMillan’s expressive After the Tryst is an instrumental short based on his previous setting of a love poem by William Soutar.

The concert will be enhanced by the use of the d&b Soundscape system at King's Place, with a specially-devised sonic landscape produced by Electra Perivolaris, which sets the scene in the hall, and between the pieces, to evoke the experience of escape to a festival music performance on a Scottish island.

The event will last approx. 1 hour, without an interval.
