Schubert and Woolrich at Glasgow Cathedral
Glasgow Cathedral, Castle Street, Glasgow, G4 0QZ
Celebrating its tenth birthday in style, the Berkeley Ensemble is delighted to present a monumental cornerstone of the repertoire, Schubert’s jubilant Octet for winds and strings. As a birthday present to itself, the ensemble has also commissioned a celebratory work for the same forces by British composer John Woolrich, which will receive its Scottish premiere during this concert, alongside Britten’s dancing divertimenti and an exquisite miniature by Haydn.
