Press Release for Perthshire Amber

Dougie MacLean and the BT Scottish Ensemble
(with Pete Clark, Graham Mulholland, Jamie MacLean, John Moran)

Where Celtic meets Classical
The following is a review of the debut live performance at City Hall, Perth, Scotland, May 22, 1999:

Perthshire Amber, a four-movement instrumental suite by Dougie MacLean was unveiled to huge public acclaim in its debut performance...

It is an immensely successful piece, rooted absolutely in traditional dance and melodic idioms, and characterized by MacLean's unforgettable lyrical melodies...

Carrying the bulk of the gorgeous melodies were fiddler Pete Clark and piper/whistler Graham Mulholland, whose haunting whistle solo in the slow movement, electronically enhanced, was so spellbinding you could almost sense a collective suspension of breathing in the huge audience. MacLean himself provided the rhythm and a brief vocal melody at the end.

The string writing for the BT Scottish Ensemble-expertly scored by Kevin McCrae-ranged across decorative backdrops, bustling counterpoints with the folk instruments, and powering the rhythmic engine room of the music.

An irrestible tapestry of tunes, rhythms, instrumental and orchestral colours, harmonies and textures. When can we hear it again?-The Herald (Scotland)
