Max Bruch‘s ‘Scottish Fantasy’ in E-flat Major Op. 46 premiered on this day in 1881.
The first performance was given by Hungarian virtuoso Joseph Joachim – with the Liverpool Philharmonic Society Orchestra.
Bruch is said to have been very dissatisfied with Joachim’s performance – and a month later re-premiered the work with Spanish soloist Pablo de Sarasate.
