Picture of all members of Hebrides Ensemble


Scotland’s foremost chamber ensemble brings a varied programme of music from the 20th Century. Penderecki’s unusual combination of clarinet and strings was written in 1993 and inspired by Schubert’s String Quintet.

Judith Weir’s Bagpiper’s String Trio is inspired by the tale of the piper executed in 1746 after the bagpipes were declared a weapon. Tara Creme has worked in a number of genres and is especially known for her film music; here she creates a work based on a painting by her father of the Green Deva (angel) taking inspiration from Indian classical music.
