French Edinburgh

Cross-Channel [by ECME Chamber]

The Edinburgh Contemporary Music Ensemble (ECME) was founded 10 years ago in order to provide a platform to emerging composers and musicians wishing to explore new sounds, with the motto ’all music was once new music!’.

Since then ECME has performed more than 30 orchestral works by composers at the threshold of their careers, an output recognised as an ’astonishing range of new music by some of the hottest young talent in Scotland’ (The Scotsman).

For this concert ECME celebrates contemporary chamber music in all its shapes and forms with a special programme showcasing both French and UK composers living in Scotland.

THU 13 JULY | 7.00PM 
Running time: 1 hour 30 mins approx.

    Award-winning chanteuse Christine Bovill has built her reputation on the massively successful sell-out show, Piaf. In Christine Bovill’s Paris, she beckons you back to the golden age of French Song; a demi-monde of heroes and outcasts, cynics and bruised romantics. With drama, pathos and pizzazz, the show casts a sepia-tinged spotlight on the songs and stories of Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Barbara, Juliet Greco, Charles Aznavour and more, interspersed with wonderful anecdotes from the period. Come and be transported into a Parisian scented twilight world of song. ★★★★★ (Scotsman). ★★★★★ (Herald).

    All seating is unreserved and latecomers may not be admitted.
