MacMillan, James

(Born; Kilwinning, Ayrshire, 16 July 1959). Scottish composer. He studied at Edinburgh University and then with Casken at Durham University. In 1990 he became affiliate composer of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra; he has since become visiting composer for the Philharmonia (London) and artistic director of its Contemporary Music Series. His music is noted for its energy and emotional power, its religious and political content and its references to Scottish folk music. Recent works include The Beserking (1990), a piano concerto for Peter Donohoe; Sinfonietta (1991); and Veni, Veni, Emmanuel (1992), a percussion concerto for Evelyn Glennie.
