Sibelius saw a flight of swans in the sunset and heard the tune that crowns his Fifth Symphony. Antonín Dvorák was overwhelmed by the power and beauty of Niagara Falls and poured his feelings into a Cello Concerto as tender as it is passionate. And Thea Musgrave, a giant among Scottish composers, summons shimmering magic from an old Finnish myth. Tabita Berglund and soloist Torleif Thedéen take a journey to a place where nature, fantasy and emotion become one.

The performances of Thea Musgrave’s Song of the Enchanter, part of the RSNO’s Scotch Snaps series, are kindly supported by the John Ellerman Foundation and the Ambache Charitable Trust, which raises the profile of music by women.
