ten days of top-notch chamber music are in store with this month’s Music at Paxton.

Now well established on the Scottish and UK music calendar, this year’s line-up includes a return visit by the renowned violin and piano duo, Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien.

There is also Schubert’s Trout Quintet, performed by the Scottish Ensemble and pianist Alasdair Beatson, a solo harpsichord recital by the Iranian-born Mahan Esfahani, and the Doric and Carducci String Quartets.

Baritone William Berger and the well-known pianist and broadcaster Iain Burnside will present a programme entitled Insomnia, marking its release on Delphian Records.

Also featuring is East Lothian-based guitarist Simon Thacker in a solo recital, along with ensembles Arctic Winds, Pure Brass performing outdoors, Flutes en Route and the Sutherland Duo.

New this year is a short and free taster concert for people who might not have attended before, to be given by Alasdair Beatson on the opening evening.

As usual, Music at Paxton offer pre-concert suppers and afternoon teas, using freshly sourced, local produce.

Further drinks and refreshments are also available, while there will be an opportunity for a guided tour of Paxton House.

Music at Paxton runs from Friday, July 13 to Sunday, July 22.
