We return to some of Scotland’s most beautiful and atmospheric venues for our annual seasonal treat – Concerts by Candlelight. With the musicians surrounded by warm, flickering candlelight, this concert will take audiences on a journey; from the baroque in the form of music by J.S. Bach, to the present – including the rich expansive melodies of Caroline Shaw and the sensuous and emotional music of Pēteris Vasks.
An intimate evening of music; a moment of tranquillity; a performance to inspire and uplift.
Concert lasts 75 minutes with no interval.
Supported by The Ambache Charitable Trust – raising the profile of music by women.
