The Scottish Symphony in Images
Ouverture “The Hebrides” op. 26
Symphony No. 3 a-minor op.56
Just as Mendelssohn’s music evinces the Scottish landscape, so do Melle’s images portray the joy of life and the melancholy of this country. Melle enjoys a special relationship with the overture, and it is a piece that has touched him in a deep way.
The appropriate motifs Melle found on the island of St Kilda, one of the outer Hebrides. It is a jewel, a magical place full of loneliness, legends and wonders of nature.
