Ensembles – the perfect combination of instruments

Ensembles that we offer are:

STRING QUARTET

2 Violins, Viola Cello –The string quartet has a full orchestral sound and a vast repertoire. The quartet is one of the ensembles which, due to its versatility of repertoire, is a good choice and is suitable for larger events.

Events
The Quartet at The George Hotel, Edinburgh

 

 

 

String Trio
As a String Trio at Oxenfoord Castle, Pathead.

STRING TRIO

Violin, Violin or Viola, Cello – The String Trio has a more delicate sound and is more suitable for smaller venues and events with less guests. As there are only 3 players in the trio, it costs less to hire. Our trio repertoire is also large and varied and includes all the wedding music favourites.

 

 

 

 

String Duo
As a String Duo at Shieldhill Castle, Biggar.

STRING DUO

The String Duo is a good choice for smaller venues and events with less guests. The duo also works well for wedding ceremonies. Less repertoire is written for duo, and it has a more intimate sound.

 

 

 

FLUTE QUARTET

Flute, Violin, Viola, Cello – The Flute Quartet is a surprisingly good alternative to the string quartet. If you are looking for something just a little different, the addition of the flute to the strings is really beautiful. It has a rich full sound, a vast repertoire and is one of the ensembles more suited to larger events. The Flute Quartet carries the same repertoire as the String Quartet.

Ensembles
At Torosay Castle, Isle of Mull

 

FLUTE TRIO
Flute, Violin or Viola, Cello – Like the string trio this combination is a surprising alternative and the sound of the flute, as with the quartet, works beautifully with the strings. The flute trio is suited to smaller events and venues and includes the same repertoire as the String Trio.

 

 

 

Weddings
Marcus Swietlicki – Tenor

SINGER or SINGERS

A soprano or Tenor is a lovely addition to a wedding ceremony. A solo such as ‘Ave Maria’  or ‘My Love is Like a Red Red Rose’ can be performed accompanied by the String Quartet or Trio during the signing of the register, or indeed any song that suits your taste.
