This DVD, released in September 2019, captures some of the highlights from the SFO’s annual concert in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on 15 September 2018.
Members of the orchestra had warmed up with an impromptu “pop-up” concert on the steps of the concert hall, before their rehearsal that afternoon.
There’s the usual irresistible mix of reflective slow airs, driving reels, jigs and rousing pipe tunes and you’ll find well-known favourites alongside new compositions and arrangements.
Featuring with the orchestra are:
- the ever-popular Mezzo Soprano, Colette Ruddy,
- fine tenor, Robert Lovie,
- the Combined Pipe Bands of McLaren and Balfron Schools,
- our own piper, Catriona Norman,
- Yla Steven BEM and Sarah Lynchehaun, who duet on a beautiful slow air, and
- Lewis Kelly – providing an enthralling fiddle solo
A Grand Night in Glasgow has all the standard ingredients you have come to expect from an SFO concert while still leaving room for a few innovations and surprises. You won’t be disappointed!
An additional £3.00 to cover the cost of postage and packing will be added at the checkout.
