Discover the greatest composers and performers from Scotland - past and present - and those who were inspired by the country.
A composer and Music Director, Stirling-born Mathieson was responsible for attracting first rate composers to arrange and conduct their scores for British films. During his wartime service with the Ministry of Information, he commissioned scores from Bliss, Walton, Vaughan Williams and Arnold. And we have him to thank for Benjmain Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, commissioned for the film, Instruments of the Orchestra.
