Scottish Ensemble will be joined by highly-acclaimed duo ChrisStout(fiddle) and Catriona McKay (Scottish harp) for this summer session: a night of music in the relaxed surroundings of the CCA’s downstairs bar.
With a long history together as both musical collaborators and friends, this will be a performance crossing musical genres and styles. Together, they’ll treat you to impressive displays of virtuosity across works for solo strings and full ensemble, Celtic-inflected pieces of haunting beauty, intriguing gems from a host of 20th-century composers, and more.
…comprehensively demolished perceived barriers between classical and traditional music, along with notions about alleged limitations in a string ensemble. A glorious night for music in all its diversity.
