Product Description

The PlacesOur tour of Scotland takes us from Edinburgh, with its castle, Scott monument and Palace of Holyrood, to the highland and then to The Hebrides, recalling the journey undertaken by the young Mendelssohn. The MusicIn 1829 Mendelssohn visited England and, after the summer season, travelled north to Scotland, accompanied by his friend Karl Klingemann. In Edinburgh he visited the Palace of Holyrood, recalling the tragic story of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the murder there of her secretary David Rizzio. Further north he took the steamer to the island of Staffa, where he saw Fingal's Cave and in spite of sea-sickness immediately sketched the opening theme of his Hebrides Overture. It was not until 1842 that his Scottish Symphony was completed, a work inspired by memories of his visit to Scotland.

NO May 29 2010

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Having spent a good deal of time in the Hebrides AND loving the overture by itself, I was looking forward to the combination of music and scenery. Most of the DVD is filmed from a boat across endless water with musical accompaniment. I wasted my money and will return to my CD and private photographic collection to conjure memories of these lovely islands.

By Nadia Arensdorf - Published on Amazon.com
This video is almost an hour of beautiful images across northern Scotland that are set to music by Mendelssohn. If you are looking for an educational video, this is not going to satisfy you. If you have visited Scotland - or these sites in particular - it will be especially enjoyable to watch. Next time I would consider broadcasting this over my television and working while enjoying the music and the images periodically, instead of simply watching. I will give it 3 stars due to little "educational" value (besides the inspiration of setting) that I was looking for.
