The work of Lochaline composer Lisa Robertson was among a selection of new compositions performed by a contemporary string ensemble at Ardtornish House last Thursday evening.
The Inchcolm New Music Ensemble has been developing an ongoing cycle of Scottish music inspired by the ‘Inchcolm Antiphoner’.
The Antiphoner is a plainchant written more than 1,000 years ago by monks at the island of Inchcolm in the Firth of Forth. The Ardtornish concert was part of a series which then saw the new music taken to Iona Abbey and St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.
Ms Robertson developed a piece entitled ‘May this house stand’. The young woman from Lochaline has studied at both the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow and Royal Holloway College in London. She was also recently shortlisted for the Dorico Award for Small Scale New Work at the Scottish Awards for New Music.
The concert was very well received by all who attended.
