Winner of the 2008 Rubinstein International Piano Competition, Roman Rabinovich is a stunning musician with a growing international career as recitalist and concerto soloist.

In this series of morning coffee concerts he presents five programmes featuring the piano sonatas of Joseph Haydn whose brilliance, boundless imagination and heart-warming humanity are as much on display here as in his quartets and symphonies – a fascinating and rewarding musical journey.

Add some coffee with delicious pastries from the incomparable German master baker Falko Burkert plus a daily festival news briefing from Festival Directors Hugh Macdonald and James Waters and you have the recipe for an essential morning date throughout the week.

The Town House, Haddington

The Town House in Haddington was designed by William Adam in 1748, though little of his original work remains. A court room and assembly room were added in 1788 over the colonnade of Haddington Market.

The bell in the clock tower rings at 7am and then again at 10pm, suggesting waking and bed time and has done so to mark curfew since 1532.
