In the making
We have commissioned Duncan Strachan to write a piece for our Ensemble in Residence GAIA. "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" is inspired by Wallace Stevens' 1917 poem of the same title, and is a rumination both on our connection with nature, and on the beauty and wisdom of the everyday and commonplace.
We have commissioned Kim Moore to write a piece for our Ensemble in Residence GAIA, to mark the end of her first year as our Artist in Residence. "A song we destroy to spin again," for violin, cello, and live electronics, is a culmination of Kim's thoughts and experimentation during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Classic Music Live! Falkirk and Chamber Music Scotland have co-commissioned Falkirk-born composer/pianist Euan Stevenson. "Sound Tracks," which will be premiered by the Earthtones Trio in 2021, celebrates the pathways spanning central Scotland, linking iconic modern structures and longstanding historical landmarks.
We commissioned Sally Beamish to write a piece for our Ensemble in Residence GAIA, which premiered at St. Magnus Festival in June 2021. "Stone, Salt, and Sky" reflects on the distinctive landscape, music, and history of Orkney, including its ancient settlements and strong connections to Norway and the sea.
We are always looking for new talent to work with on upcoming commissions, workshops, and events. Compose for the top chamber musicians in Scotland, inspire young minds, and showcase your talent.Get In Touch
