Music Score and Bow

Hebrides Ensemble at Edinburgh International Book Festival 2019

We may remember the first line of a novel, but what about the last? In this celebration of great endings to close the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival, we’ve challenged composers Linda Buckley, Matthew Grouse, James MacMillan, Pàdruig Morrison and Gareth Williams to respond musically to favourite last lines from novels, submitted by members of the public. Hear an exclusive live performance from the Ensemble as you learn which nine lines have been chosen.

Catherine Backhouse       Mezzo-soprano
Yann Ghiro                         Clarinet
Zoë Beyers                         Violin
