Mendelssohn, Bruch and Maxwell-Davies each paint a vibrant picture of Scotland's wild and wonderful landscape, from the glowing warmth of sunrise to the rugged ruins of Holyrood Abbey at night. Performing these works today, are the finest players from the CBSO’s world-class Youth Orchestra who bring their unstoppable energy to this Scottish-inspired programme.
