Bernstein Piano Trio
Copland Appalachian Spring
Copland Piano Variations
Bernstein Arias and Barcarolles 

Launching the International Festival’s day-long Leonard Bernstein centenary celebrations – on what would have been his 100th birthday itself – one of Scotland’s greatest chamber ensembles brings together four compelling works by the great US composer, conductor and educator and his mentor, Aaron Copland.

The Hebrides Ensemble has been assembling some of the UK’s finest chamber musicians for gripping performances for more than 25 years. Bringing The Queen’s Hall concerts to a resplendent close, they contrast the energy and sophistication of Bernstein’s youthful Piano Trio with the intensely autobiographical love songs of his lyrical Arias and Barcarolles, his last major piece.

They complete the concert with the pungent power of Copland’s rugged Piano Variations, and the easy-going melodiousness of his touching tribute to pioneer America, Appalachian Spring.
