Mozart Piano Quartets

Mozart all but invented the piano quartet and here four of Scotland’s finest musicians come together to perform the first of his two masterpieces in that form.

Fauré also wrote a pair of wonderful piano quartets. The first, perhaps his most popular chamber work, balances passion with airy elegance.

Susan Tomes is one of today’s most distinguished pianists in this repertoire.

Supple, sublime accounts from a quartet of SCO strings plus guest pianist Susan Tomes . . . life-affirming stuff, captivating and moving.

The Scotsman

'The pianist Susan Tomes joined string soloists from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to play piano quartets by Mozart and Fauré, in a concert that made a virtue of these works' difference. Mozart's quartet was played with reduced vibrato and a touch of steel, tapping into the work's dramatic austerity, but Fauré's surged with Romantic ardour, vibrato restored, throbbing passion replacing classical elegance.'

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.
