Event description

Description

Flickering candlelight, atmospheric architecture, and music of illumination, reflection and warmth… Join the UK's leading string orchestra for a Christmas concert with a difference.


Vivaldi
Guitar Concerto in D major, RV 93

J. S. Bach
Chorale Prelude (from The Art of Fugue)

Corelli
Concerto Grosso in G minor (‘Christmas Concerto’)

Pēteris Vasks
Musica Adventus

Holst
Intermezzo (from St. Paul’s Suite)

Pairing glowing candles with music of hidden depths, Scottish Ensemble's much-loved Concerts by Candlelight series are a reflective alternative to the usual carol concerts in the lead up to Christmas.

At this year's concert, Renaissance and Baroque works, full of radiant festive charm, sit alongside lingering contemporary sounds that will stay with you long after the concert ends. Always offering a little extra gift, Scottish Ensemble will welcome the talented guitarist Sean Shibe as a very special guest. Having only recently graduated from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the BBC New Generation artist has already been turning heads at high-profile concerts and music festivals, and in May 2018 won a prestigious Royal Philharmonic Society award.

"genius, a term which should rarely be applied to performing musicians, but at 25 he has it."
The Arts Desk on Sean Shibe, July 2017
