Explore the wondrous ruins of an old Scottish abbey

Be the first in Australia to experience the colours of Thea Musgrave’s Rainbow. The Scottish-American composer’s cinematic music is dotted with ethereal flutes and thunderous timpani, while strings build layers of gripping suspense. Mendelssohn’s spirited Scottish symphony was inspired by the weathered ruins of an old stone abbey, and it’s just as majestic in scale. Tchaikovsky’s stirring Piano Concerto No.1 is your centrepiece – an impressive opening fanfare gives way to soaring melodies, dazzling virtuosic passages, and profound emotional depth.
