Patron STEVEN OSBORNE
It has been a long two years since we last presented live concerts and we are delighted to be able to plan a festival this September. For your safety and comfort it will be a socially distanced one, with audiences sitting in bubbles 1m apart.
We are thrilled to welcome the visionary American pianist Jeremy Denk as our artist in residence for four concerts: Mozart Concertos with the SCO, Schubert’s 'Trout' Quintet, The first Book of Bach’s ‘Well Tempered Clavier’ as well as a solo recital.
‘This festival’s subheading is beautiful music, beautiful places. It fulfils its promise.’
‘There’s a quiet class about the whole thing that generates a special kind of listening: for all the dark arts of conjuring festival ambience, Lammermuir tends to simply programme right and let the music do the talking’
‘Music treats in surprising places. Hard to ask for more than that I’d say. I urge you to check it out.’
‘A remarkable experience – The Lammermuir Festival, founded only in 2010, is going from strength to strength under artistic directors Hugh Macdonald and James Waters.’
‘A wide range of inventive music-making taking place with some of Scotland’s most stunning scenery as its backdrop.’
‘The Lammermuir Festival is one of the UK’s youngest classical music festivals, but it has already carved out for itself a pretty special niche in the hearts of the audiences who are in on the secrets of its quality and its very special atmosphere’
