Paxton House, on the River Tweed, was designed in 1763 by architect John Adam and is one of the finest examples of neo-Palladian architecture in Scotland. The house includes the magnificent Picture Gallery designed by Robert Reid, which houses works of art on loan from the National Galleries of Scotland, and is the venue for our return visit to the popular Music at Paxton Festival. The evening begins with a buffet supper and wine served in the Hayloft Gallery, followed by a recital from Quatuor Zaïde. Formed in 2012, this lively young French quartet is gathering up many of the notable chamber music prizes, performing extensively in major halls throughout Europe as European Concert Hall Association Rising Stars. They will perform Debussy’s Quartet in G minor and Schubert’s monumental G major Quartet completes the programme.
Programme: César Franck: Quartet in D, Schubert: Quartet in G D887 Please note: It is essential to advise us of any dietary intolerances you may have in advance of the event.
