Scottish Ensemble’s annual Concerts by Candlelight tour has long been a well-loved favourite in our audiences’ calendars. While we don’t think that squeezing into cosy pews in Scotland’s beautiful churches and cathedrals will be possible this year, we hope you’ll join us for a special filmed version, due to be released on Wednesday 16 December. Light your own candles (carefully!) and set aside an evening to enjoy a spectacular film, rich in glowing atmosphere and steeped in solace.
At the end of a year that has felt out of balance, this year’s programme brings comfort through a sense of symmetry. Patterns, reflections and partnerships will feature in conversational concerti for multiple instruments, intertwining canons and partitas, and music by J.S. Bach, Anna Clyne, Arvo Pärt, Edmund Finnis and George Crumb. The full programme will be announced in November.
You can book a ticket to view the premiere and we will supply a link no later than 12 hours before the concert. After the event you will receive another link to be able to watch again if you wish.
If you can’t join us for the premiere, then book to watch later at your leisure and we will send you the link to watch after 16 December.
(If you would like to watch the concert on the same screen with other members of your family, please purchase the household ticket if you are able. Scottish Ensemble is a registered charity and all ticket purchases will go towards supporting our organisation and freelance musicians.)
