Scottish Ensemble Commonwealth Strings
Edinburgh International Festival

Scottish Ensemble

A vibrant celebration of the richness and diversity of music-making across the Commonwealth. The Scottish Ensemble brings together 14 of Scotland's foremost string players in a tightly knit ensemble, famed for its luminous, ardent performances. It is joined by Commonwealth Strings, a group of exceptional young string players selected from across the Commonwealth for this Festival performance, in a concert contrasting glorious English classics and rich Antipodean evocations.

Elgar's noble yet virtuosic Introduction and Allegro is joined by Vaughan Williams's mystical 'Tallis Fantasia', interspersed with the vivid nature evocations of Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe's joyful Third Sonata for Strings and a new Festival commission from leading New Zealand composer Gareth Farr. The concert ends with the jazzy rhythms of Tippett's thrilling Concerto for Double String Orchestra.

Edward Elgar : Introduction and Allegro
Peter Sculthorpe : Sonata for Strings No 3
Vaughan Williams : Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
Gareth Farr : Relict Furies for mezzo soprano and double string orchestra
Michael Tippett : Concerto for Double String Orchestra

The Festival's concert series at the Usher Hall concludes in epic style, with a blazing confrontation between darkness and light given by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Principal Guest Conductor Ilan Volkov.

Edinburgh International Festival Director and composer Sir Jonathan Mills's oratorio Sandakan Threnody honours the 2,500 British and Australian prisoners of war who lost their lives in the death marches in North Borneo during the Second World War.

By contrast, Janáček's Glagolitic Mass is a joyous affirmation of life. A cast of renowned international singers, the full force of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus and acclaimed organist Thomas Trotter bring the Festival to a spectacular, jubilant close.

Red Note Ensemble

The site of Prestongrange’s museum has a fascinating industrial history going back to the 16th Century including glass, pottery and brick manufacture as well as mining. The impressive, high-roofed Power House is perfect for this exciting programme of music for brass. The Red Note Ensemble contrast sonorous pieces from the Renaissance with the amazing, spatial effects of contemporary music by composers such as Harvey and Birtwistle. The overwhelming, surround-sound beauty of Jonathan Harvey’s Ricercare played by trumpet virtuoso Mark O’Keeffe makes a fitting climax to a very special event.

“O’Keeffe’s playing was undemonstratively sensational. A stupendous performance”
The Herald
