20 Nocturnes and Moonlight

, Start Time: 22:00, End Time: 23:00 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX

Ensemble Perpetuo, Elena Urioste & Tom Poster

This concert brings together Festival performers in a late-night exploration of night, darkness and moonlight. At the heart of the programme sits Franck’s late Quintet, a dark and impassioned work whose first pianist was Saint-Saëns. Round this centrepiece sit calm nocturnal reflections and Tom Poster’s own arrangements of familiar popular songs.
