Join the RCS Keyboard department in celebrating Scotland in music. This afternoons Keyboard Session explores music inspired by Scotland’s culture, landscape, poetry and history.  

 

Collaborations involving dance, film, and art all feature in this online performance, with a mixture of solo works and chamber music. Included are some lesser-known works by contemporary Scottish composers, as well as a few weel-kent classics.  

 

Sit down with a hot water bottle, a cup of tea, and a biscuit, and let us lead you on a wee “stravaig” – a wander through some of Scotland’s music!
