The Navarra Quartet open with the first of Mozart’s ‘Haydn’ quartets – a wonderfully warm, witty tribute to the older master. The most ‘classical’ of Beethoven’s early quartets, also full of wit and charm, ends the concert.

Bartók’s 3rd is a true classic of 20th century music – cathartic, challenging to players and listeners, and elementally focused on the timeless constants of his country’s folk heritage and Bachian counterpoint.

Everything about their performance exuded not only quality, but the excitement of making music together again.

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.
