Scottish Ensemble 2012-13 Season film by Hugh Carswell
To celebrate the announcement of our new season we commissioned Hugh Carswell to create this gorgeous film for us.
Hugh came along with us on the road with us to Cockermouth, where we were performing our co-commission with Perth Concert Hall by James MacMillan, Seraph, with Alison Balsom as part of the Music Nation weekend in March 2012, the start of the countdown to the London 2012 Festival. Hugh also sat in on some rehearsals in Tramway in Glasgow, in the beautiful Crear in Argyll and padded around Greyfriars in Edinburgh at our candlelit concert in December 2011.
We first worked with Hugh in October 2010 when we met him at the Caird Hall in Dundee to record the string parts for his I’Anson project. Hugh wrote a great blog post about the recording, and you can watch a film of the day on his YouTube channel
