Skye Blues

Fisher, Aidan

About the work

The piece is based on two Skye folk songs, “Sleep on till day”, and “Isle of mists”, which provide a framework for the music, but are never fully quoted. It is an elegy for all cultures under threat from more dominant ones.

Technical notes

The piece is quite demanding, with considerable rhythmic complexity
