Danny Driver’s last Lammermuir appearance brought the audience to its feet after his incredible performance of Ligeti’s Études. Here he scales another pianistic Everest in Beethoven’s monumental ‘Hammerklavier’ Sonata, with Northern Irish composer Deirdre McKay’s evocative portrait of a winter landscape as an atmospheric prelude.

'This country is blessed with several exceptional pianists… of whom Danny Driver most assuredly is one'

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
