Anyone who heard Thomas Dunford at Lennoxlove last year will understand why this remarkable young musician is increasingly regarded round the world as one of the finest lutenists of his generation.

Here he returns with an equally charismatic young artist, Lea Desandre, one of the brightest new stars of the famous ensemble Les Arts Florissants.

The two of them offer a bewitching programme of French music in beautiful Tyninghame House.

"The young mezzo captivates... such deep understanding is rarely found in young artists."


"Thomas Dunford... effortlessly attentive musicianship."
