About this Event

What is Scottish Ensemble's Musical Book Club?

Through our Musical Book Club, we want to offer a relaxed environment to bring people together, discuss powerful works of music, and recapture some of the post-concert spirit we might otherwise enjoy over drinks together after a performance!

An Evening with Craig Armstrong

Craig Armstrong's output as a composer is remarkably broad: from scores to Hollywood blockbusters like Baz Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet (1996) and Moulin Rouge! (2001) (for which he won a Golden Globe), to his latest release: The Edge of the Sea (2020), which, a little closer to home, explores that no-less remarkable tradition of Gaelic Psalm Singing.

Joined by SE Principal Cellist Alison Lawrance, Craig will explore his compositional process and film scoring work through a selection of his own pieces.

Please note, you don't need to have any existing technical musical knowledge to join in - this is all about sharing passion and interest!

How Can I Join In?

The Book Club will be hosted through the free video conferencing software Zoom. If you would like any assistance downloading or configuring Zoom, just let us know.

A playlist containing recordings to be discussed, along with some questions and thoughts from Craig, will be shared with participants around one week before the session.

Any Questions?

If you have any further questions, feel free to write to Scott at scott.morrison@scottishensemble.co.uk.
