Sounding Scotland's wild plants in music

Baroque and contemporary music and stunning nature photography


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 (just been appointed the first female Master of the Queen's Music).

High Heels and Horse Hair

Award-winning string duo High Heels and Horse Hair present TRANSPLANTED, a project celebrating the rich diversity of Scotland's plant life and its music. New works by eight Scottish composers feature alongside the remarkable music of Baroque composer James Oswald and a backdrop of stunning plant portraits by nature photographer Laurie Campbell.

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)
