Piano Trio in A minor
Quartet for the End of Time
Messiaen’s Quartet has become a true classic of 20th-century music. Composed during WW2 amid the privations of a German prison camp, it is a work of deep spirituality and boundless, cathartic energy – a profound meditation on the nature of God. Steven Osborne, one of the world’s leading interpreters of Messiaen’s music, leads an ensemble perfectly attuned to this great work’s qualities, and they precede it with Ravel’s ardently romantic piano trio.
'Osborne’s revelatory performance is a blinding tour de force of interpretive and pianistic incandescence. Awesome'
Classic FM Magazine
'There’s something very special about walking through nature to get to a concert'

Dirleton is one of the most picturesque of East Lothian's many beautiful villages, and its church, Dirleton Kirk, dedicated to St Andrew, is a real gem.
Built in 1612 to replace the parish church along the coast at Gullane which was continually being inundated by sand, this long, low-eaved church with its square, gothic-topped tower is built of warm pink sandstone.
Its striking Archerfield Aisle (1664) is Scotland's earliest example of neo-classical architecture. Inside, the mellow light filters through some especially fine stained glass.
