Hebrides Ensemble with Brett Dean
August 20, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Part of the 75th Edinburgh International Festival
Hebrides Ensemble with Brett Dean Composer, Conductor, Viola
Programme includes Brett Dean Recollections and Brahms String Sextet No 1 in B-flat.
The Edinburgh-based Hebrides Ensemble is one of Scotland’s finest chamber groups, with a history of acclaimed performances and recordings across both contemporary music and classic repertoire. It draws together many of the nation’s most accomplished instrumentalists in inspirational performances, placing new music at the heart of explorations reaching far further back in time.
Australian musician Brett Dean is respected worldwide as both a violist and a composer. He collaborates with the Hebrides musicians in the surreal reminiscences and swirling colours of his own Recollections, a vivid voyage into musical memory.
Dean joins the Hebrides players, too, in the rich melodiousness of Brahms’ youthful String Sextet No 1, shot through with its own sense of poignant nostalgia.
Part of the UK/Australia Season 2021–22, supported by the Australian Government and the British Council.
