Scottish Ensemble - 2012/13 Season

This film about the UK's only professional string orchestra's forthcoming season of concerts and creative outreach activities was shot on the road between their engagements in Cockermouth, rural Argyll, and Scotland's four regional cities. Interviews here are underscored with a mixture of the programmed music; Shostakovich, Britten, MacMillan and Tchaikovsky. Glasgow-based, the ensemble are one of Creative Scotland's foundation organisations, with a well-established body of critical acclaim and an increasingly international reputation.
