Concerts by Candlelight: Music for Warmth and Restoration
Music for Warmth and Restoration Scottish Ensemble's annual seasonal treat returns with an atmospheric and life-affirming evening of music set within a shimmering array of candles. From the gorgeous musical balm of Henry Purcell, to the warmth and generosity of Brahms, via touching music by Biber, and, bringing things up to date, the thick, treacly sonic textures of Julia Wolfe's Four Marys, this is a programme that spans the centuries, offering something for every taste. Scottish Ensemble is joined for these performances by the incisive and dynamic presence of violinist and director Matthew Truscott, leading proceedings in this perfect pre-Christmas musical feast.
