Malcolm Arnold: Tam O'Shanter Overture Op.51 (Study Score)

Books | Orchestral

Composer: Malcolm Arnold
Format: Sheet Music | Score
Tam O’Shanter was first performed at a Henry Wood Promenade Concert on 17 August 1955, with Malcolm Arnold conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It was received with tremendous enthusiasm, and was, without doubt, the most popular novelty during the 1955 season of Promenade Concerts. The composer is at pains to point out that, whereas the earlier overture Beckus the Dandipratt is not descriptive but merely a musical impression, Tam O’Shanter is very definitely programme music.
