Anno
is an entertaining, surprising, utterly original experience of Vivaldi’s Baroque masterpiece, The Four Seasons, for string orchestra and electronics.

At its Edinburgh Fringe premiere, you’ll sit in the centre of a dark, transformed world, cocooned by sights and sounds which evoke the passing of a year – from the awakening of spring, to the mournful intensity of summer to the hushed darkness of winter.

Performing up close, Anna and Scottish Ensemble become silhouettes against a backdrop of screens pulsating with Eleanor Meredith’s quirky visual art. At times haunting and achingly beautiful, at others punchy and bombastic, Anno is a lingering live experience of music acoustic and electronic, old and new, which defies and questions our need for any such categorisation.

Anno is part of the 2018 Made in Scotland Showcase – madeinscotlandshowcase.com

“Vibrant and kaleidoscopic in a way few musicians could ever muster, Varmints provides a jolt of energy and inspiration to both the pop and classical inflections of Anna Meredith’s personality, bridging the two worlds like never before and marking her out as a talent like no other.”
