Inner Hebrides – William Conway

The fifth and final of our glorious Inner Hebrides film series features our Artistic Director William Conway.

Spectacularly filmed by Flux Video at the Institut français d’Écosse, and at the top of Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh. Alongside a remarkable programme beautifully played, William Conway offers insights into his musical journey, and his inspirations as Artistic Director of Hebrides Ensemble for over 30 years.
