After the Snow, released on 9 February 2015, is the latest album by acclaimed Scottish composer Malcolm Lindsay. Beautifully performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, conducted by Greg Lawson, the CD features a world premiere co-write with English National Opera clarinettist Barnaby Robson.
The album contains three suites; Remembrance, Vision and Last Words and draws inspiration from the spoken word of Dr King, the written words of Mark Halliday, Bernard MacLaverty and Janice Galloway, the street sounds collected by artist and printmaker Stuart Duffin in Jerusalem and the photography of Margaret Watkins.
Malcolm Lindsay proves himself a composer of rare subtlety and this music is written from the heart. A very personal body of work that reflects Malcolm’s emotional journey of one kind or another, After the Snow is a luscious sonic experience, both meditative and cinematic in quality.
