Hebrides Ensemble returns to EIF

30 March 2022

Hebrides Ensemble is delighted to have been invited to perform alongside renowned Australian musician Brett Dean as part of the Edinburgh International Festival’s 75th anniversary programme.

Brett Dean is respected worldwide as both a violist and composer, and here 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.
