Alban Gerhardt and our Festival Patron Steven Osborne have been chamber music partners for over 20 years. Reflecting the fact that they are both brilliant soloists in their own right they open their programme with two great solo works. They then combine for three sonatas that explore a kaleidoscopic range of colours and styles, and offer the profound insight and inspiration of a truly remarkable musical partnership.

BBC Radio 3

'The wonderfully satisfying partnership of cellist and pianist.'

The Guardian

'Strongly and sensitively partnered by Steven Osborne, Gerhardt gives a wonderfully vital performance of the Cello Sonata, alert to the cunning interplay between the two instruments and to the rhythmic wiliness that characterises the opening movement and the pizzicato second.'

The Telegraph

Dunbar Parish Church, Gillespie Graham's grand red sandstone gothic church of 1821 stands proudly looking out to sea.

Damaged by fire in 1987, its spacious interior was restored with a colourful mix of ancient and modern features including an elaborate early 17th Century monument to the Earl of Dunbar and some fine 1990 stained glass by Shona McInnes and Douglas Hogg.
