The remarkable Edinburgh-born, US-resident Thea Musgrave is one of Scotland’s most senior and revered composers, whose music brims with compelling drama. Her 1988 orchestral work The Seasons aligns the changing year with a human lifetime, from the destruction of autumn to icy winter, hopeful, birdsong-filled spring to joyful summer.
The film is part of our 23/24 Digital Season, From Scotland to the World
