Grammy-nominated composer Anna Clyne has taken the music world by storm in the last decade. She studied at the University of Edinburgh at the same time as our music director, and her work from 2019, DANCE, a cello concerto in all but name, is full of deep expression and melodic invention. We open our exploration of the North with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, written after a trip to the Scottish Highlands, and include a lost gem by Nikolai Tcherepnin. Every Sibelius symphony ends remarkably, but the ending of his Fifth symphony is one of the most astonishing by any composer—a flight of swans gives way to crashing chords surrounded by silence.
