This superb programme commemorates the 100th anniversary of Debussy’s death. We also premiere the festival’s second commission from Stuart MacRae in his Prometheus series, with leading British tenor Joshua Ellicott as soloist in this and in Britten’s late Canticle V. Former Lammermuir Festival artist in residence, Emily Hoile makes a welcome return in gorgeous masterpieces by Ravel and Debussy.

Deservedly huge cheers at the end of the night went to Joshua Ellicott ...musical distinction, emotional precision and a keen dramatic urgency.'
