Exhilaration and Darkness from Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Exhilaration and Darkness from Scottish Chamber Orchestra | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it
Benjamin Britten was one of the first British composers to really appreciate the music of Mahler, and he made this chamber arrangement of the Third Symphony’s second movement in 1941. When it was first performed in Britain in 1942, it was the first part of the symphony to be heard in this country. It’s effectively a reduction, as the instrumentation is all but identical. The string sound is a little thinner, of course, but it’s still characterful, and this arrangement gave the SCO a chance to show their mettle in the work of a composer whose music they seldom get to touch.

Review: Scotland locals take on big money in 'You've Been Trumped'

Review: Scotland locals take on big money in 'You've Been Trumped' | Culture Scotland | Scoop.it
"You've Been Trumped" sounds like a setup, a well-meaning contrivance with a preordained conclusion. It could have turned out that way, but the reality of this surprising — and surprisingly disturbing — documentary is much more eye-opening than that.

Dance review: Danza ContemporÁnea de Cuba, Edinburgh Festival Theatre - Scotland - Scotsman.com

ANYONE focusing on the “Cuba” part of this company’s name, rather than the “Contemporánea”, may have found it wanting. There’s no salsa, no high-heeled rumba – just some of the finest contemporary dancers touring the world today.
