Bank of Scotland Queen’s Hall Series
Ahhhhh! Classical, light-hearted beautiful music like this is just so wonderfully de-stressing, relaxing, calming, harmonising. So it’s no wonder that BBC Scotland is recording this performance to be broadcasted on 30th of August on BBC 3, for all who missed it live, want to hear it again or could not get a seat in this nearly sold-out concert hall. The six musicians are specialists in period instruments and early music arrangements; they also explain some basic knowledge about these wind instruments, in particular the unusual basset horn. And as fantastic as the performance was, its appeal did not stretch beyond the usual classical music lover, with an average age of over 60, giving the impression of the audience to be a massive care-home outing.
Queen’s Hall, 15 – 16 Aug, 11 am (12.45 pm), prices vary, eifpp 39.
