* Composer Michael Gandolfi, the honoree of the 2014 Lancaster Symphony Orchestra Composer Award, was inspired to compose this music by a unique garden in Scotland, designed by landscape artist Charles Jenks. It is called The Garden of Cosmic Speculation. The actual garden is open to the public only one day out of every year. However, for anyone interested in visiting the garden at another time, Michael Gandolfi has offered to try to arrange a visit. More information can be found with out featured interview with Michael Gandolfi.
