Marin Alsop & BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra - Edinburgh International Festival: Orchestral Highlights 2021 - The Wee Review
In returning to local soil, A Spell for Green Corn continues the string motif as the lashing sounds of the Scottish landscapes are soothed and tamed by the island’s ancient ties to the fiddle and folk music. Alsop’s conducting here forces the brass winds themselves to take a bended knee, with the concert shifting from a movement-based rhythm to a turbulent stronghold ready to be calmed.
