Live Music Now Scotland is teaming up with Edinburgh City Libraries Music Library for a relaxing concert with music from the Spencer-Strachan Duo.
Emerging artists Rachel Spencer (violin) and Duncan Strachan (cello) perform a selection of traditional music from Scottish composers, inspired by music held in the Central Library’s collections. The duo will perform one of Duncan Strachan’s own compositions, Lamentoso, based on Niel Gow’s haunting Lament for the Death of his Second Wife, as well as Dance Suite for Two, a contemporary piece by Eddie McGuire commissioned by Live Music Now Scotland and featured on the charity’s 30th Anniversary compilation album, `Luminate’.
