In the final weekend of the Festival, artists Birrell & Harding invite Syrian composer and violinist Ali Moraly and other classical musicians to present live performances that form an integral part of their festival commission.
Ali Moraly presents a performance of Quatrain for Solo Violin after Paul Celan’s Death Fugue a 4-part contrapuntal work composed for Fugue, a project devised by Moraly and Birrell in response to the shared etymology of ‘fugue’ and ‘refugee’.
The recital takes place at Trinity Apse where the music scores of Fugue are presented as an integral part of the installation.
With additional support from British Council Scotland.
