Pierrot Lunaire at Lammermuir Festival

The Hebrides Ensemble mark Schoenberg’s 150th Anniversary with the two great nocturnal classics he gave to the 20th century: the aching beauty of his ‘Transfigured Night’ and his visionary expressionist masterpiece about Pierrot, a lovelorn, moonstruck clown.

For this performance the Hebrides Ensemble is joined by the remarkable young Colombian / American soprano Stephanie Lamprea, and the experience is enhanced with specially commissioned paintings by Scottish artist Kirsty Matheson

North Esk Church, Musselburgh

Opened in 1838 and recently restored, this fine church was designed by the Scottish architect William Burn (1789–1870). Among Burn’s best-known Edinburgh buildings are the Edinburgh Academy, St John’s Princes Street and North Leith Parish Church. He was a master of several different styles, and was regarded as a pioneer of Scottish baronial style in buildings like Balintore Castle and the Sheriff Court at Inverness Castle. The interior at North Esk features an all-round horseshoe gallery and a high vaulted ceiling. There are seven stained glass windows (one by Ballantine and Gardiner, 1892), a pink alabaster font and a fine brass eagle lectern. The organ, behind the central pulpit, was built by Abbot and Smith of Leeds in 1904.
