The St Andrew’s Musical Ensemble comes to Macrobert

 

 

This March, the St Andrew’s Musical Ensemble came to the Macrobert Arts Centre and performed De Simone’s Poetics and Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks.

 

The group consisted of students from the University of St Andrews and specialist musicians from across Scotland.

 

The performance was not only a showcase of these two scores, but a discussion on the language and narrative of music. De Simone attended the event and talked about his unique journey with music and how his personal life experiences, education and training shaped the creation of Poetics, which is revered as a complex and singular contemporary composition.

 

The style of the two pieces of music was made clear through the precise nature of the performances which were energetic and captivating and a fine example of classical music talent in Scotland.
