Jeremy Denk with the Valo Quartet II at Lammermuir Festival

Jeremy Denk and the Valo String Quartet join forces for their second exploration of Gabriel Fauré’s music for piano and strings. The cliché about Fauré is that he was a miniaturist, too refined and reticent to soil his hands with the drama of a symphony. But there is nothing small-scale or restrained about Fauré’s piano quintets and quartets where his characteristic seamless flow of sound is driven by restless passion. As the perfect foil to the D minor quintet’s ethereal melancholy, the Valo Quartet play Beethoven’s glorious, big-hearted ‘Harp’ quartet.

Prestonkirk Parish Church, East Linton

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.

Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.

The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
