Peebles harpist, singer-songwriter and composer Esther Swift is joined for this Festival Concert by the Brodick Quartet – four of Scotland’s finest young string players. Together they will play the world premiere of Esther’s latest composition, jointly commissioned by Music in Peebles and Enterprise Music Scotland.  Esther says “This project is a chance for me to delve into the complex and relentless sound world of water using string quartet, voice and harp.” The music will be accompanied by a film specially created by Tom Swift.

The Brodick Quartet will also play a selection of Nordic folk tunes arranged by the Danish String Quartet. The concert ends with the ever-popular First String Quartet by Tchaikovsky, with its famous Andante Cantabile second movement.
