The Scottish Ensemble has announced its Concerts for a Summer Night, a series of concerts around the Summer Solstice, 20 to 23 June 2022, when days are longest. 

The events have all been designed to use venues which make the most of the natural light, from atriums at Edinburgh's National Museum of Scotland, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Barras Art and Design in Glasgow, to a byre in Perthshire.     

Directed by Jonathan Morton, a 12-piece ensemble will play an eclectic programme including music by Purcell, Mozart, Schubert, Dvorak, William Grant Still and Victor Herbert. Dobrinka Tabakova's Spinning a Yarn (which features violin and hurdy-gurdy) will be paired with her arrangement of Schubert's song Gretchen am Spinnrade,  and there is music by Hans AbrahamsenThomas Adès and Jessie Montgomery.

Full details from the Scottish Ensemble website.
