For A Winter's Night
Concerts by Candlelight
A 50th Anniversary special of our much-loved Concerts by Candlelight series.
Flickering candlelight, atmospheric architecture, and music of illumination and warmth... Our much-loved December concerts provide an alternative to the usual musical offerings of the season, filling the beautiful surrounds of churches and cathedrals with evocative music from across centuries and styles.
Celebrating our 50th anniversary, this year we offer a jigsaw of significant snapshots and fragments from across Scottish Ensemble's history, from pieces that have particularly resonated with our audiences, to some of our most significant commissions and musical moments. Between well-known works such as Sibelius's Rakastava, Tavener's Tears of the Angels and extracts from Bach's Goldberg Variations we'll weave in Scottish traditional sounds, melodies from a golden era, a haunting carol and more.
