Final highlights from the 2018 St Magnus International Festival, with the Danish Sinfonietta, Red Note Ensemble and Ensemble Perpetuo performing Debussy, Francaix and Franck.

The final programme in an eclectic week of concert highlights from the St Magnus International Festival in Orkney. The Danish Sinfonietta, regular visitors to this Nordic Festival perform Francaix's jaunty wind quartet while the Ensemble Perpetuo join with pianist Tom Poster and violinist Elena Urioste for a festival performance of Franck's dark and passionate piano quintet.
