RUSH HOUR #8: HIGHLANDS
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Maxwell Davies An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise 
Mendelssohn
 Symphony No.3 ‘Scottish’

Karin Hendrickson conductor

“Next August I am going to Scotland, with a rake for folk songs, an ear for the lovely, fragrant countryside, and a heart for the bare legs of the natives”, exclaimed the 20 year old Mendelssohn. His trip north made a big impression, the misty scenery and bloody history inspiring some of the composer’s most expressive and profound music. Both moodily beguiling and joyfully uplifting, his third symphony is a sonic OS map at its most potent.

Written 150 years later, as the whisky diminishes the celebrations become ever more riotous in Maxwell Davies’ highland party. As guests make their way home, the sun rises with startling beauty over the rugged cliffs.
