In 1755 Scottish Baroque composer James Oswald published Airs for the Seasons,a remarkable compendium of 96 duos for violin and cello, each depicting a different plant or flower. Inspired by these, eight of Scotland’s foremost composers have written new miniatures exploring the extraordinary characteristics of native wild plants.

New works by: David Fennessy, Martin Kershaw, Stuart MacRae, Eddie McGuire, Chris Stout, Hanna Tuulikki, David Ward
and Judith Weir (recently appointed the first female Master of the Queen’s Music)

“I have found my own interactions with TRANSPLANTED to be unexpectedly thought-provoking, and it’s been energy-giving to have worked directly with the performers through all stages of the commissioning and composing process.” Judith Weir
