Red Note Ensemble was founded in 2008 by Scottish cellist Robert Irvine, and is directed by John Harris (Chief Executive and Artistic Co-Director) and Robert Irvine (Artistic Co-Director). The Ensemble performs established contemporary music, commissions new music, develops the work of new and emerging composers from around the world and finds new spaces and new ways of performing contemporary music to attract new audiences.
Red Note’s musicians are drawn from the deep talent pool of Scottish new music expertise, and counts amongst its players some of the very finest performers working in the UK today.
Red Note undertakes a Spring and Autumn season each year comprising tours, site-specific work and collaborations with other companies within Scotland, around the UK and abroad, and runs regular new music series showcasing the work of new composers (Noisy Nights and Noisy Words).
They will be playing a Scottish-Indian fusion at the Gathering as they are joined by tabla player Kuljit Bhamra to perform some excerpts from Reels to Ragas.
Red Note Ensemble is a Scottish success story” Anna Picard, The Times.
