Scottish Ensemble is a group of outstanding musicians who champion music written for strings, crossing genres, styles, periods, and art forms to make new connections.
Flickering candlelight, atmospheric architecture, and music of illumination and warmth…
Our much-loved December concerts provide an alternative to the usual musical offerings of the season, filling the beautiful surrounds of Greyfriars Kirk with evocative music from across centuries and styles.
Celebrating our 50th anniversary, this year we offer a jigsaw of significant snapshots and fragments from across our history, from pieces that have particularly resonated with audiences to some of our most significant commissions and musical moments. Between Sibelius’s Rakastava, Tavener’s Tears of The Angels, and extracts from Bach’s Goldberg Variations will come arrangements of melodies from a golden era of music, Scottish traditional tunes, and a haunting carol. Step out of the winter cold, and into a space of reflection, contemplation and inspiration.
