Transplanted

Transplanted

This concert from string duo High Heels & Horse Hair celebrates the rich diversity of Scotland’s plant life and its music. In 1755 Scottish Baroque composer James Oswald published ‘Airs for the Seasons’, a remarkable compendium of 96 duos for violin and cello, each depicting a different plant or flower and written on a single side of paper. Inspired by these, and using the same criteria, 8 of Scotland’s leading composers have written new miniatures exploring native plants and their many uses in society over the centuries.
