Barrowland Ballroom
The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

spectacular 45+ musician showcase
freshly-written sounds of tomorrow
sheer power of strings

Beneath the hallowed ceiling of the Barrowland Ballroom, almost fifty musicians from the best ensembles in Europe assemble, armed with music to make you feel.

Music for the future, and the past, by people with serious vision: Mica Levi, Erkki-Sven Tüür and Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead). Penderecki, Mahler, Hidegard von Bingen and Gabrieli. Music to make you feel everything: elated, at one with the moment, temporarily confused, a little bit scared, excited, overwhelmed, at peace, inspired. There are things these composers can do: chilling, body-encompassing, goosebump-inducing, heart-breaking things, and then some.

Join us for a night of pan-European music celebrating the infinite possibilities of music for strings, kick-starting The Bridge Festival.
