James MacMillan is the pre-eminent Scottish composer of his generation, producing exciting new music which combines strong rhythm, raw emotional power and spiritual meditation. His music shows a strong connection with religious and social themes.
He first attracted major attention at the 1990 BBC Proms in the UK, with the première of The Confession of Isobel Gowdie
. His most widely-known work to date, however, is his percussion concerto Veni, Veni, Emmanuel
(1992), which has received over 350 performances!
