Lammermuir Festival - Beautiful Places, Beautiful Music

East Lothian’s celebration of
Beautiful Music in Beautiful Places

11 – 20 September 2015

To hear great music-making in a beautiful building can be unforgettable – the kind of experience we always hope to give you at the Lammermuir Festival.

We are thrilled to have the Michelangelo String Quartet as Artists in Residence this year. A truly wonderful ensemble, all their members are major soloists in their own right.

We showcase them in three fabulous quartet programmes, a recital and two concerto appearances. Their unique residency will be something truly special.

Last year Steven Osborne and Tenebrae gave some of our most talked-about performances and it’s good to have them back.

We pay tribute to Sibelius in his 150th anniversary year and we have a special place for Rachmaninov and Bruckner just because we love their music.

Johann Sebastian Bach is the focus for a major event in which the Dunedin Consort combines the arts of music and baking with coffee and ideas, while the Royal Northern Sinfonia makes another foray across the border to play Grieg’s ever popular Piano Concerto with their new Music Director,
Lars Vogt.

There is, of course, much more – and as always, we have found some beautiful new places in which to listen. September is a lovely time of year in historic, tranquil East Lothian. Please join us – we look forward to seeing you!

Hugh Macdonald and James Waters
Artistic Directors

“A wide range of inventive music-making taking place with some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery
as its backdrop.”

BBC Music Magazine

“The combination of countryside, lovely weather and transcendental music-making constituted one of the best musical experiences of my life.”
