Dunedin Consort
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Edinburgh's own Dunedin Consort is joined by tenor Nicholas Mulroy for a compelling performance, with John Butt conducting.

A regular performer at the International Festival for many years, Edinburghs own Dunedin Consort has rapidly established itself among Europes most vivid, compelling early music ensembles, under the visionary direction of conductor and scholar John Butt.

With a repertoire stretching from the 17th century to the present day " as demonstrated in their acclaimed performances of Errollyn Wallens Didos Ghost in 2021 " the Dunedin musicians inject bristling energy and vibrant freshness into all they perform.

Joined by brilliant British tenor Nicholas Mulroy, the Dunedin musicians explore music from a century before Bach. Their rich, vibrant repertoire of works from early 17th-century Germany and Italy ranges from expressive tenor arias by Schtz and Monteverdi to choral and instrumental works, concluding with Venetian composer Barbara Strozzis remarkably expressive miniature cantata, Lagrime mie.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
