Nordic Viola presents reflections on female experience of landscapes and community around the North Atlantic region in music by women composers for string quartet. The programme includes ‘Machair’ by young Highland composer Lisa Robertson, and works by British composers Lillie Harris and Anna Appleby and by Arnannguaq Gerstrøm from Greenland, with traditional music from Iceland arranged by American Jocelyn Hagen. There is new music by traditional fiddlers Margaret Robertson (Shetland) and Fiona Driver (Orkney), and music influenced by Orcadian history and the Hardanger fiddle style by Gemma McGregor.
In partnership with UHI’s Institute of Northern Studies and funded by Creative Scotland and the Year of Coasts and Waters
