Program Notes

Strathcarron is a movement from Philip Sparke’s Hymn of the Highlands, in which each movement reflects a different location in the beautiful Scottish highlands. Strathcarron, named after a village at the head of Loch Carron, near the Isle of Skye, takes the form of a sword dance which alternates between fast and slow tempi.
