Our artists in residence this year are the brilliant string players of Scottish Ensemble, joined in this opening Tryst concert by the world-renowned Scottish percussionist Colin Currie. 

The programme culminates in the world premiere, co-commissioned by The Cumnock Tryst, of a new concertante work by and performed with the unique composer Dave Maric, who has produced numerous works for the concert hall, stage, TV and film. He has been championed by some of the world’s great performers including Colin Currie, who joins us at the Tryst fresh from a whirlwind of international performances of solo recitals and concertos.

Scottish Ensemble’s programme for Cumnock is an exciting procession through musical history from the Baroque splendours of Purcell, the classical genius of Mozart, the soft, French, pictorial romantic beauty of Debussy and Fauré, and the energetic modernism of 20th century Russians, Prokofiev and Stravinsky.
