Mendelssohn's 'Scottish'


  • Richard Wagner / Henk de Vlieger from Tristan und Isolde: Nachtgesang und Isoldes Liebestod (adaptation Henk de Vlieger)
  • Gustav Mahler Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
  • Felix Mendelssohn Third symphony 'Scottish'

Nuno Coehlo conducts Wagner and Mendelssohn. Orchestra and conductor Catriona Morison also accompany in songs by Mahler.

Catriona Morison
The Scottish-German mezzo-soprano Catriona Morison sings songs by Mahler. One reviewer once described her voice as 'dark mezzanine'. It fits beautifully with Mahler's mildly melancholy Lieder eines fahrenden Gezellen .

Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony
No composer has as much Wanderlust as Mendelssohn. As a child he went to the Swiss mountains with his family and as a young man he spent a long time in Italy, the impressions of which he incorporated into the Italian Symphony. But the Third Symphony is also a real journey. After an intensive tour of England, he went on holiday to Scotland at the age of twenty. He enjoyed the rugged highlands, was impressed by the famous abbey ruins in Edinburgh, visited Sir Walter Scott and recorded it all years later in his Scottish Symphony. Even the bagpipes, the most horrible instrument he had ever heard, pass by.
