Island Verses: Skye

  • Portree High School 1 Viewfield Square Scotland, IV51 9HB United Kingdom (map)

The Edinburgh Quartet will be visiting Skye as part of their tour of a new commission by up and coming, but already critically acclaimed, composer Peter Longworth. The piece is designed for a combination of music/spoken word, and is unique in that it will react to each local community’s sense of place through new texts being written in each location, led by author Ron Butlin.

Programme:
Beethoven – String Quartet Op.18 No.1 (approx. 30 mins)
Peter Longworth – Island Verses (approx. 20 mins)
Interval
Tchaikovsky – String Quartet No. 3 (approx. 45 mins)
