Final Edition

This outstanding company make their last EVER visit to Edinburgh this September.

They are determined to go out with flying colours so have put together a celebration of this company's unflagging record of creativity - Richard Alston's new Voices and Light Footsteps is set to the glorious music of Monteverdi, sensuous and expressive. The world premiere of A Far Cry by Martin Lawrance is set to the impassioned Introduction and Allegro by Edward Elgar. Pieces to live music include Mazur (Chopin) and, hugely popular when premiered in Edinburgh last year, Brahms Hungarian.

Don't miss out on this visit because after they're gone, they really are!


With dashes of czardas or glimmers of folk dance – it’s very Alston in its musicality and unjaded delight

The Herald


It's exhilarating, captivating, its generosity practically contagious, and it proves that at 7O Alston shows no signs of slowing down
