With the Nash Ensemble and RCS Voices in concert in Glasgow. Glazunov: Idyll and Serenade. Shostakovich: String Quartet No 7. MacMillan: Cello Sonata No 2; Miserere.

Rounding off this week's celebration of chamber music by James MacMillan, the Nash Ensemble perform the composer's one-movement Second Cello Sonata alongside Shostakovich's equally succinct Seventh Quartet and Glazunov's serene Idyll and Serenade for Horn and Strings from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Down the road at St Andrew's Cathedral Glasgow, the RCS Voices perform his penitential and evocative Miserere which draws much on the inspiration of Allegri's most famous work on this text.
