Join two of the UK’s most innovative musicians, Daniel Pioro (violin) and James McVinnie (organ), as they play with the cathedral’s vast ambience in a groundbreaking musical journey through four centuries of music. Transporting you from the emotive drama of Biber’s 17th-century Rosary Sonatas to the poetic lyricism of Vaughan Williams’s 'Lark Ascending', their exploration also visits contemporary American composer Nico Muhly’s ambient 'Drones for Violin'; a haiku- like balance of blank space and unwavering tones. This performance opens our evening concert series, and the programme of new works alongside such well-known favourites is not to be missed.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Cathedral Festival: Daniel Pioro & James McVinnie are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
