About London’s Classical Music Scene

Since its introduction in the eighteenth century, classical music has played an integral part in the Scottish music scene. Formally described as ‘art music’, concerts composed of Scottish Airs were a vessel for the introduction of classical instruments in the country. Prior to this, the Italian cellist and composer Lorenzo Bocchi was credited as the man responsible for introducing Italy’s style of classical music, when he ventured over in the 1720s. Within the same decade, The Musical Society of Edinburgh was introduced.

Straying from the Italian style of classical playing, Scottish composers James Oswald and William McGibbon founded the Scotts drawing room, making classical music more accessible for the middle class. By the late 19th-century, Scotland had established its first National School of Orchestral and Operatic Music, placing the art of classical music amongst Scottish education and producing composers like William Wallace.

After WW1, influenced by modernism and Scottish musical cadences, the landscape of Scottish classical music started to change. In 1947, the Edinburgh Festival was created, which led to a further expansion of the genre in Scotland and inspired the foundation of Scottish Opera in 1960. Scottish composers like Ronald Stevenson and Francis Scott have earned critical acclaim for their classical contribution to film soundtracks, further positioning classical music amongst the mainstream genre.
