Lammermuir Festival, 2017: Hebrides Ensemble
The Hebrides Ensemble perform Schubert's Octet in Dirlton Kirk in East Lothian, the first in a series of four Lunchtime concerts recorded at 2017's Lammermuir Festival.
This is the first in a series of four Lunchtime concerts recorded at this year's Lammermuir Festival, which hosts recitals across the picturesque county of East Lothian on the east coast of Scotland. In today's concert, The Hebrides Ensemble perform Schubert's Octet in the beautiful setting of the 17th-century Dirleton Kirk. Schubert's Octet is his largest chamber work and ranges in style from symphonic grandeur to light-footed playfulness and comes from the same period as his other major chamber works, the 'Rosamunde' and 'Death and the Maiden' string quartets.
