Brahms made many attempts at string quartet-writing but only three of them met his perfectionist standards and were published. This talented young French ensemble play all of these intensely personal works in two concerts, here adding Webern’s early quartet movement, a musical love-letter to his future wife.

Quatuor Agate … endlessly delight the ear with their phrasing

Gladsmuir Parish Church, Gladsmuir

Gladsmuir Parish Church is a Romanesque cruciform church dating from 1839 and designed by William Burn. A replacement was built after a fire in 1886 by John Farquarson of Haddington with later improvements made in 1929.

The older ruined church can still be seen and explored behind the new church. Gladsmuir's principal "claim to fame" relates to its role as the site of the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745.
