A Lammermuir Journey with ZRI - Janá?ek - Love

Janácek – Love, Mania and Murder features Janácek’s radical first String Quartet, inspired by Tolstoy’s ‘Kreutzer Sonata’, re-imagined in a programme that takes the listener on a journey of passion and obsession.

ZRI is named after the famous Viennese café Zum Roten Igel (The Red Hedgehog) where musicians like Schubert and Brahms heard gypsy and folk music. Beginning with their radical re-scoring of the Brahms Clarinet Quintet, this group of multi talented musicians has developed equally captivating programmes which re-imagine great works by Schubert and Janácek. This evocative musical journey visits three of our favourite historic churches in some of the county’s most beautiful countryside.

Prestonkirk Parish Church, East Linton

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.

Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.

The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
