London Sinfonietta returns to Kings Place, presenting an evening of music by Scottish composers exploring the idea of love and our deepest human need for connection.

Judith Weir’s evocative music sets the scene, before the Public World Premiere of a privately commissioned work Love Bade me Welcome by James MacMillan setting poetry about divine love by George Herbert.

Peter Maxwell Davies’ Hymn to Artemis Locheia is a rarely performed and virtuosic work for clarinet quintet, written as a celebration of the joy and exuberance between couples when new life is confirmed. MacMillan’s expressive After the Tryst is an instrumental short based on his previous setting of a love poem by William Soutar.

The event will last approx. 1 hour, without an interval.
