  Overture  
A brand new compilation of great Scottish music

Available for the first time at ‘Classics’ price

The music is performed by two world-class orchestras, including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

Here is music that romantically evokes the Scottish highland scenery and the haunting atmosphere

Chandos is pleased to present a new compilation of some of the finest orchestral music inspired by Scotland.

Hamish MacCunn’s melodramatic and colourfully engaging The Land of the Mountain and the Flood, with its delectably unforgettable lyrical theme, receives a superb performance in Sir Alexander Gibson’s hands. This is joined by Berlioz’s Waverley and Rob Roy – which the Penguin Guide describes Gibson and his SNO as ‘at their most dashingly dramatic’; Mendelssohn’s beguilingly Romantic Hebrides Overture and Sir Malcolm Arnold’s tuneful Four Scottish Dances plus his comic and orchestral tour de force, Tam O’Shanter completes the disc.

This collection combines well-known and much rarer repertoire and is a unique and a highly appealing set at an excellent price

Gibson, understandably give a most affectionate account…both Tam O’Shanter and the Land of the Mountain and the Flood are in the demonstration bracket.
Gramophone on CHAN 8379

It certainly is the most beautifully recorded.
The Penguin Guide on Hebrides Overture

This entire programme…comes together seamlessly and benefits from warm, faithful sonics that bring all of it resoundingly into your living room as if newly minted. Whether island seascape of Highland fling, it is immediate, played to the hilt, and a feast for the eye and ear as images from Scottish history and legend unfold, each more wondrous than the last – fitting tribute indeed to the real ‘Spirit of Scotland’.
American Record Guide

Reviews from original releases:
This is music-making with plenty of character, unflagging gusto, and a forthright sensibility that beats most attempts by likewise less-than-world-class orchestras to counterfeit the poetry as well as the hullabaloo.
Fanfare on CHAN 8316
