the Scottish Fiddle Orchestra - Serenity (CD)
Release Date: 01/01/16
A collection of beautiful slow airs with conductor and director of music john mason mbe. A fantastic album from the world famous scottish fiddle orchestra
Some of the most beautiful melodies that can be identified with Scotland are known as 'slow airs'. They evoke a huge range of emotions as they refer to human events, tragic and happy, or the drama of land and sea. With its magnificent symphonic sound, hearing these works played by The Scottish Fiddle Orchestra is a uniquely uplifting, yet relaxing experience. Especially commissioned recordings were made in The Henry Wood Hall in Glasgow and The Usher Hall in Edinburgh, just so these works could be realised in all their glory and resonance. Under the batons of conductor John Mason, MBE and deputy Andrew McGarva, this album is probably one of the best ways to hear the poignant heartbeat of Scotland.
