About this exposition

This research explores the connection between Scottish traditional music and Alexander Campbell Mackenzie’s classical composition, the Pibroch Suite, through the concept of Scotland’s national idiom. The purpose of this study is to create a performance guide for future violinists who are performing Mackenzie’s Pibroch Suite. The guide includes a foundation for Scottish ornamentation, bowings, rhythm and phrasing also including general historical background to the composer and the Scottish traditional music culture. As well as technical information, this research resulted in an annotated score that incorporates the addition of ornamentations, bowings, phrasings and general stylistic ideas in order to perform the Pibroch Suite in a Scottish and classically informed style. The study focuses on Scotland’s national idiom as a foundation to discovering a performance that blends Mackenzie’s Scottish origins with his classical compositional style. The work will act as a performance guide for future musicians as a basis for their own interpretations of the Pibroch Suite as well as future work in the field of folk/classical crossover.
