'Another consistently, thoroughly enjoyable Hyperion disc of discovery. The sound is demonstration class, with a floorboard-cracking bass end' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

Land of the mountain and the flood & other orchestral works

Described as ‘unquestionably the finest opera of the late Victorian period’, Jeanie Deans was first performed in 1894 and has most recently been revived in 1986 and 1994, on each occasion being highly praised. This is the first recording of any part of it at all. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins are joined by distinguished soloists including Lisa Milne and Janice Watson.


Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Hamish MacCunn: the name itself is a kind of bold statement, and if ever there was a composer who emerged from the glens and firths of Scotland, fully armed, the MacCunn was that person. Yet this is the first recording devoted solely to his work and, with the exception of Land of the Mountain and the Flood, the first of any of his orchestral music.
