When Robert Plane’s recording of Iain Hamilton’s Clarinet Concerto was released in 2020, BBC Music Magazine hailed ‘a thrilling rediscovery from an unfairly neglected composer.’ Inspired by the Book of Genesis, William Wallace’s mighty Creation Symphony, meanwhile, is by turns rousing, mysterious, and warmly lyrical. Martyn Brabbins, who has recorded both works with the orchestra, opens with another by his friend, Judith Weir. He’s also behind one of two short new viola works commissioned by our players (the other by Sir James MacMillan) both receiving their World Premieres here.
