The UK’s leading string orchestra come to Dumfries’ Theatre Royal for a concert of music representing the many shifting sounds and scenes of America. From the pressing heat of the deep south to the sharp autumnal wind of the Appalachian trail to the anxious hum of the metropolis… Come with us on a journey through a North American landscape, and an evening of music rich with belief, fervour and visionary talent. From the simmering cinematic joy of Philip Glass’ Company to the ecstatic frenzy of John Adams’ 21st-century masterpiece, Shaker Loops, we descend, gently, into Copland’s evocative, russet-toned depiction of a New England landscape, performed complete with clarinet, flute, bassoon and piano. Scottish Ensemble is a group of outstanding musicians who champion music written for strings, crossing genres, periods, styles and art forms to make new connections. You might find them playing in a prestigious concert hall, a shopping centre, your local pub, or an international music festival… Linking each and every event is a commitment to performance of the absolute highest quality.
