A Mendelssohn double-bill bookends tonight’s
concert. The Hebrides overture was shaped
by one of the composer’s earliest passions,
travel, and the memory of a windswept journey
at sea. Continuing this theme, the ‘Scottish’
Symphony was inspired by a visit to Holyrood
Palace, scene of the grizzly murder of Mary
Queen of Scots’ secretary Rizzio. Eric Fogg’s
Bassoon Concerto was written in 1931 for
Archie Camden, a professor of bassoon at the
then Royal Manchester College of Music. The
concerto, which has been unjustly neglected
since, features a pair of rhythmically sparkling
outer movements and a central slow movement
of pure lyricism.
