Probably no piece of chamber music merits the term ‘music of friends’ more than Schubert’s ‘Trout’ Quintet. Its easy, carefree charm, only occasionally allowing the mood to darken, has made it one of Schubert’s most popular pieces.

Perhaps ‘music of community’ better describes the second violin sonata of that great American original Charles Ives: half-remembered fragments of beloved hymns jostle with hoe-downs or marching bands in passionate, warmly nostalgic, dream-like chaos.

Denk’s razor-sharp responses to his fellow players had plenty of humour to them, laugh-out-loud funny in sudden flashes throughout the finale.

Dunbar Parish Church, Gillespie Graham's grand red sandstone gothic church of 1821 stands proudly looking out to sea.

Damaged by fire in 1987, its spacious interior was restored with a colourful mix of ancient and modern features including an elaborate early 17th Century monument to the Earl of Dunbar and some fine 1990 stained glass by Shona McInnes and Douglas Hogg.
