Hebrides Ensemble is delighted to be invited to perform this prestigious programme as part of the Edinburgh International Festival’s 75th anniversary programme.

Australian musician Brett Dean is respected worldwide as both a violist and a composer. He collaborates with Hebrides Ensemble 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’s youthful String Sextet No.1, shot through with its own sense of poignant nostalgia.
