2018 Playlist #01


Our weekly playlist is back! Press play to get a taste of what to expect in concert halls this August.

In our first playlist of the season, we are showing the wide scope of the music programme at the International Festival this year: from Anna Meredith's gargantuan Nautilius you'll hear in at one of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside concert this summer, to Rossini's famous The Barber of Seville overture, to Debussy's La mer which you can hear in our 2018 trailer and which will be performed by the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland in August.

Each week we'll be exploring the programme from a different angle, so stay tuned for more!
