After Farrera (World Premiere)



Kaleidoscope end their three concert visit to East Lothian with a thrilling programme that sums up their questing attitude to the repertoire, always seeking out neglected marvels as well as offering a platform to living composers.

Korngold’s frankly astonishing suite is one of the former – an epic work for an unusual instrumental line-up composed in 1930 for that tireless commissioner of music for piano left hand, Paul Wittgenstein. Alongside it is a new work by 75-year-old English composer Nicola LeFanu. ‘After Farrera’ is named for her composing retreat, a village high in the Catalan Pyrenees, which she says is a wonderful location for quiet and solitude.

A sparky, shape-shifting ensemble of starry young musician.

Dirleton Kirk, Dirleton

Dirleton is one of the most picturesque of East Lothian's many beautiful villages, and its church, Dirleton Kirk, dedicated to St Andrew, is a real gem.

Built in 1612 to replace the parish church along the coast at Gullane which was continually being inundated by sand, this long, low-eaved church with its square, gothic-topped tower is built of warm pink sandstone.

Its striking Archerfield Aisle (1664) is Scotland's earliest example of neo-classical architecture. Inside, the mellow light filters through some especially fine stained glass.
