In their Lammermuir Festival debut the RSNO are joined by Jeremy Denk in what Brahms teasingly described as his “tiny, tiny concerto” – actually the biggest and most symphonic of all popular piano concertos. Its vast dramatic and lyrical canvas makes demands that only an artist of Jeremy Denk’s stature can meet. Sibelius explores the dark regions of the soul more deeply in his most enigmatic, concentrated symphony than in any other work, leaving us at the end both moved and unsettled.

St. Mary’s Parish Church, Haddington

The Collegiate Church of St Mary the Virgin is one of the great ecclesiastical buildings of mediaeval Scotland, founded in 1380 and known for centuries as "The Lamp of Lothian".

It was severely damaged in the 16th Century during Henry VIII's 'Rough Wooing' of Scotland, and after the Reformation only the nave was used as a parish church, with the choir and tower remaining roofless.

It was finally restored to its former glory in the 1970s, and is Scotland's longest church as well as one of its most beautiful, with a wonderfully warm, resonant acoustic.
