Scottish Ensemble: Concerts by Candlelight

Music to warm your soul in the depths of winter

Amidst the slight chaos of the glittery festive season, Scottish Ensemble’s annual Concerts by Candlelight offer moments of stillness, contemplation, and a beautiful musical adventure.

In the awe-inspiring St Machar’s Cathedral, the warm glow of candlelight illuminates vibrant compositions. This year we are particularly excited to present a brand-new work by Glasgow-based composer Dave Fennessy, the first instalment of a two-part commission featuring across our 2023-24 season. Alongside Dave’s atmospheric offering, we will hear works by Johan Sebastian Bach, Philip Glass and Caroline Shaw.

When hundreds of people listen together, there is a special kind of hushed calm, so join Scottish Ensemble for an evening of music to comfort the soul and bolster the spirit.
