Cranachan! (and Bartók)

We are currently collectively wallowing in post-cranachan bliss (pictured right). Alison and her team are far too good to us all! This was some much-needed fuel after our masterclass today, given by the inimitable Ralph de Souza. It was the first time that we had performed Bartók’s third quartet in its entirety, and it was special to do so in front of an audience. Cumulatively we have lost about 20 bow hairs alone throughout the course of today’s rehearsals, and are hopeful that we will have enough left to perform it on Sunday!  We are looking forward to an evening of Scottish folk music at the pub later today.
