Music In Dollar Concert by The Roxburgh String Quartet
Dollar Academy - Gibson Hall

Formed in 2005 and based in Edinburgh, the Roxburgh are quartet in residence at the city’s beautiful Lauriston Hall. Their core repertoire includes the late Schubert quartets, the German Romantics, the great French masterworks and, notably, Bartok’s First Quartet and Tan Dun’s Eight Colours for String Quartet. In 2012 the quartet performed Bach’s The Art of Fugue in the lunchtime concert series of both Edinburgh and St Andrews Universities, with harpsichordists John Kitchen and Tom Wilkinson. This experience inspired the quartet to explore even earlier music by adding Purcell to their repertoire.

In 2017, Roxburgh celebrated their 12th year with a series of concerts at Lauriston Hall followed by a concert in the Glasgow University lunchtime concert series and a very happy return tour of Mid Argyll. “Inspired music played with complete control, imagination and deep insight.” Courier
