Scottish Ensemble

Common Sound

What’s special about live music?

Why do we gather together to listen to it?

What part does the audience play in a live performance?

Why not…just stay at home and stick a recording on?

During Common Sound Scottish Ensemble will be exploring these questions through live performance and conversation, guided by BBC 6 Music DJ and Psychotherapist Nemone.

Alongside thought-provoking words from Nemone, they’ll be playing short sets that will range from gut-wrenchingly beautiful Bach through to hypnotic Steve Reich, as well as music by Radiohead and Caroline Shaw.

As we gather again for live performance, after what has been for many a long and difficult period without, this is a timely and powerful reminder of what it means to gather on Common Sound.

Programme:

Wojciech Kilar Orawa

Jonny Greenwood Proven Lands

Steve Reich Movements from Triple Quartet

François Couperin Les Barricades Mystérieuses

Radiohead Kid A

JS Bach Erbarm dich mein, O Herre Gott
