Largely forgotten today, Felix Yaniewicz was a remarkable figure in Scottish music: a Polish-Lithuanian composer and virtuoso violinist, and co-founder of the very first Edinburgh Music Festival, way back in 1815.

Discover Yaniewicz’s own brilliantly dramatic Third Violin Concerto, as well as the music he performed and presented during the Scottish Enlightenment, in the company of acclaimed period performance conductor Peter Whelan and Colin Scobie, first violinist in the Maxwell Quartet and a respected soloist in his own right.

Celebrate the grandeur of Scotland’s own historic music – with a bracing Overture by Fife-based Thomas Erskine, Scotland’s most illustrious 18th-century composer, as well as Scottish song settings by JS Bach’s most pioneering son, plus new arrangements of traditional tunes by Niel and Nathaniel Gow.

Haydn’s stirring ‘Military’ Symphony – which Yaniewicz performed under the composer during his visits to London – brings the evening to a majestic close.
