Programme notes *: additional text

The music begins with two short chords, so to speak "curtain up". Immediately a picture is drawn of the Scottish highlands. Rising wafts of mist, magnificent castles and green hills. On one of these hills a wandering rhapsode plays his flute and conjures up a long time ago.
Scotland in the 13th century. William Wallace secretly marries his mistress Murron (Murron's Song), who is killed shortly afterwards by the English occupying forces. Wallace swears revenge. He declares war on the British Crown and leads a motley army of farmers and landowners into a seemingly hopeless battle (The Battle of Sterling), from which he emerges victorious and is knighted by the Scottish nobles.
Edward I. of England recognizes in Wallace a dangerous opponent and so he sends his daughter-in-law, the French princess Isabelle, as a mediator to Wallace. A friendship develops between the princess and Wallace, which saves Wallace's life more than once, and over time turns into passionate love (Isabelle).
The Scottish nobles play a double game, first and foremost Robert the Bruce. Fearing that his hopes for the Scottish throne would not be fulfilled, he betrayed Wallace to the English (Betrayal and Death). Wallace is captured, tortured and executed. Until his death, the dream of freedom is the defining content of his thoughts.
The music ends again by picking up the mood from the beginning. And the sounds of the Scottish Highlands echo forever.
