The partnership between Sir James MacMillan and the SCO goes back decades and has resulted in many remarkable new works. None has taken the world so much by storm as the percussion concerto Veni, Veni, Emmanuel. It has been performed hundreds of times since its 1992 premiere and remains a thrilling experience live: a superb, celebratory highlight for this 60th Birthday Concert. Seven Last Words from the Cross is no less of a tour de force: a vivid, shocking and heartbreaking depiction of the crucifixion.

Kindly supported by Resonate, a PRS Foundation initiative in partnership with Association of British Orchestras, BBC Radio 3 and Boltini Trust.
