Our old friends the Maxwell String Quartet are now widely celebrated for their performances of Haydn and one of his sparkling Op 74 set opens a programme which also includes Dvorák’s richly melodic G major quartet, composed soon after his return from America to his native Bohemia. The afternoon is completed by Howells’s delightful ‘Fantasy String Quartet’.

A young ensemble whose fresh, unaffected playing marries technical brilliance with an authentically Haydnesque joie de vivre.

Dunbar Parish Church

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.
