The lost dances of St Kilda echo and swirl on a sea breeze. A pianist places a chord into silence – and opens a new world of poetry and play, whilst Ludwig van Beethoven throws caution to the wind, in a symphony that feels like a huge, uninhibited burst of sunlight and laughter. Steven Osborne is the pianist, and RSNO’s leader Sharon Roffman is the guiding spirit, in a concert that celebrates the sheer joy of making music with friends.

The performance of David Fennessy’s Hirta Rounds, part of the RSNO’s Scotch Snaps series, is kindly supported by the John Ellerman Foundation and the Fidelio Charitable Trust.
