Adam Walker is among the world’s leading flute virtuosos, an artist of vision and questing intelligence. In his first appearance, he plays Carl Nielsen’s inspired concerto and a short piece written for him by Australian Brett Dean. The outstanding young Swedish conductor Daniel Blendulf leads the SCO in two great Classical symphonies. Haydn’s ‘Trauer’ packs a huge emotional punch and contrasts beautifully with the grand and optimistic ‘Linz’.

'Walker, playing with staggering virtuosity and charm, kept the audience on the edge of their seats throughout, and brought the house down at the end'

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.
