Scottish Ensemble: En Rêve

On Sunday 29 May we are delighted to welcome the Scottish Ensemble to Mackintosh Queen's Cross.

If the music of Debussy and Ravel is known for its liberating historical leap into a freer, more nuanced palette of sound, the string orchestra arrangements of some of their most well-known pieces add yet another layer.

The natural expressiveness of strings, from the low, rich timbre of the double bass to the suspended shimmer of the violin’s highest register, provides a fascinating canvas upon which we can open up the heady impressionism of the two composers. Debussy’s only String Quartet is followed by the exotic, pagan-tinged story-telling of his Epigraphes, originally written for piano. Barshai’s arrangement for string orchestra of Ravel’s String Quartet in F major, commissioned by SE, is matched with an array of his shorter works to create a beautiful patchwork of textures and colours.
