The Pure Gold series, which debuted last year, is back again to bring us works from the treasures of classical music. The series will open with the concert Scottish Fantasy featuring the exciting soloist, bagpiper Robert Jordan. He will also perform An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise by Peter Maxwell Davies. Jordan is one of the most sought-after bagpipers in the UK, having performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and many other ensembles.


We will hear Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, known as the Scottish symphony. Malcolm Arnold’s Tam O’Shanter overture, a piece of programme music, is based on a poem of the same name by the Scottish writer Robert Burns and tells the story of an alcoholic farmer. In Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy for violin and orchestra, we hear Scottish folk tunes featuring a solo by Canadian violinist Lara St. John.
