Mozart   Divertimento in D major, K. 136
Sally Beamish  Under the Wing of the Rock
Puccini  Crisantemi
Kurt Atterberg  Suite No. 3, Op. 19 for Violin, Viola and String Orchestra

Swedish Atterberg rearranged his music for Maeterlinck’s play Soeur Beatrice, replacing the original harmonium with a string orchestra. Puccini’s ‘Chrysanthemums’ (a funeral flower in Italy) commemorates the death of the King of Spain, whilst Beamish’s concerto tells a Gaelic story of a young mother fleeing the Glencoe massacre.
