Fretwork Plays the Art of Fugue at Lammermuir Festival

For their second programme, Fretwork brings their incomparable interpretation of The Art of Fugue. It is Bach’s unfinished summing-up of the art of counterpoint, a profound meditation on a theme that navigates an increasingly complex labyrinth of sound until it dramatically breaks off where Bach left it.

'Fretwork is the finest viol consort on the planet.'

Gladsmuir Parish Church is a Romanesque cruciform church designed by William Burn and dating from 1839. 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.
