About

Energetic and active in his eighties, John McLeod continues to enjoy a resurgence heralded – among a flurry of commissions and premieres – by Red Note Ensemble’s 2015 Delphian album of his chamber music.

Its distinctive colour and drama are equally evident in the orchestral works brought together here, three of them under the composer’s own baton. Written forty years apart, The Shostakovich Connection and Out of the Silence pay homage to the Russian master’s Fifth Symphony and to the maverick yet impeccable craftmanship of the Danish composer Carl Nielsen.

The Percussion Concerto – a stupendous and substantial display piece – makes full use of the extraordinary talents of Evelyn Glennie, for whom it was written thirty years ago, while the Hebridean Dances, in lighter vein yet no less vivid, bring proceedings to a rousing finish.
