Alison McNeill and Sasha Savaloni present a selection of music by living composers. As part of their residency with Enterprise Music Scotland, Stuart McRae was commissioned to create a work specially for this performance which will receive its première in this concert alongside his setting of Middle English texts from 2008. Stephen Goss’s piece draws on Mahler and the inspiration of the Arts and Crafts chapel in Surrey in a work about remembrance and peaceful contemplation. Whilst the work of the young guitarist Marco Romelli, who studies composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland completes the programme.
