Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony

Scottish Ensemble and Forest of Black present a distinct and fresh perspective of Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony in a music video that re-imagines how classical performance can be portrayed on screen. This excerpt from Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony is the second of two specially commissioned films produced with Glasgow production company, Forest of Black.

It joins Scottish Ensemble’s growing catalogue of visually striking music videos, from Anna Meredith’s ‘Tull’ the first film in partnership with Forest of Black released in November 2023 and directed by AINS, to Philip Glass’ Symphony No. 3.
