MacMillan's Concerto for Repin

Join us tonight at 7 to hear Vadim Repin (called "the best and most perfect violinist I've ever heard" by Yehudi Menuhin) perform the concerto written for him by James MacMillan, whose "musical language is flooded with influences from his Scottish heritage, Catholic faith, social conscience and close connection with Celtic folk music." The concert also includes Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Coriolan Overture. It features the BBC Scottish Symphony led by Donald Runnicles.
