Formed in 2005 and based as “quartet in residence” in their wonderful new home venue, Lauriston Hall in Edinburgh, the Roxburgh Quartet are committed to bringing live performance to as wide an audience as possible. The warmth, intimacy and passion which audiences comment on in their performances can be explained by the long held musical friendships within the group and by their shared dream of what music making is about. The quartet’s repertoire ranges from the baroque to contemporary music, meeting with great success with “Schir Corbie Ravin” by James Clapperton, in which the history, poetry and music of Scotland are reflected.
The programme for this performance will include works by Purcell, Mendelssohn and Mozart
(Purcell 3 Fantasias, z 737, z 741, z 742 Mozart quartet in g major KV 387 Mendelssohn op 13 in a minor)
Tickets: £12 (£10 for PCAA members) will be available on line and from our craft shop at 4 West Street from the 28th of March.
This is a rare opportunity to hear such an exciting and accomplished quartet play in Penicuik in such an intimate and welcoming venue. We expect it to be a very popular event and would recommend purchasing tickets in advance to ensure your place.
