Morning Concert V A Tribute to Dennis Brain

2021 is the 100th anniversary of the legendary horn player Dennis Brain, killed in a car crash aged only 36 after performing at the 1957 Edinburgh Festival.

Kaleidoscope marks this poignant occasion with an inspiring programme that opens and closes with two of the greatest chamber pieces from Brain’s repertoire, and a haunting tribute to him recently composed for Ben Goldscheider by Huw Watkins.

Exhilarating performances.

The Times

Holy Trinity Church, Haddington

Holy Trinity stands on the site of a Franciscan friary (the original ‘Lamp of Lothian’ before that title passed to St Mary’s Church nearby) which was built here in the 13th Century. The friary was demolished in 1572, and almost two centuries later, in 1769, work was begun on a ‘qualified’ Anglican chapel which was finally consecrated as Holy Trinity in 1815. The present chancel was added and the interior remodelled in an attractive neo-Byzantine style in 1930.
