Presented in association with Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
For centuries, music has mirrored nature. From delicate birdsong to rushing rivers, and the shifting sounds of the seasons to the rustle of the undergrowth, this intimate programme for soprano and orchestra celebrates nature’s voice in music, tracing its presence through some of the pillars of the Baroque repertoire.
With the Royal Botanic Garden marking its 350th anniversary in 2020, these performances promise to be a fitting celebration, set alight by the voice of soprano Rowan Pierce.
