Recording with Stuart MacRae

11 August 2021

Hebrides Ensemble has a long history with respected Scottish Composer Stuart MacRae. Perhaps best known for his 2019 opera, Anthropocene, which received a wealth of 4- and 5- star reviews from the press, Stuart is also a prolific composer of smaller-scale work which will be celebrated in our newest recording in our partnership with Delphian Records.

Taking place at the Queen's Hall, Edinburgh, in August 2021, the recording will span works from 1999's Tol-Pedn to a brand new piece, Ursa Minor, written for inclusion on this disc. It will also include the Hebrides Ensemble commission Parable (2013), featuring baritone Marcus Farnsworth, and I am Prometheus, commissioned by Lammermuir Festival and premiered by the Ensemble with tenor Joshua Ellicott in 2018 who will also appear on the disc.

The recording will be the fifth disc that Hebrides Ensemble has recorded with Delphian - find our more about our previous recordings here.
