We return to historic Winton House, whose magnificent interiors have seen memorable Lammermuir concerts in the past.

The brilliant period instrument players of Ensemble Marsyas and Scotland’s excellent young Maxwell Quartet occupy a pair of Winton’s beautiful rooms for a two part concert that contrasts 18th Century wind music with 20th Century string music, including a fine piece by Haddington composer Raymond Dodd.

“Ensemble Marsyas play everything with real flair.”

Winton House, Pencaitland

Built by the Setons following King David I's grant of land to Phillip de Sayton in 1150, Winton is one of Scotland's most beautiful and richly historic houses. During the Setons' long tenure, kings were entertained here and craftsmen from Edinburgh Castle came to embellish the house with glorious flamboyance in the Scottish Renaissance style.  The estate's next owners, the Hamilton Nisbets, linked it to one of the greatest inheritances of the 18th and 19th Centuries, furnishing it from all over Europe and the Turkish Empire. Winton is now the family home of Sir Francis and Lady Ogilvy.
