In Concertzender Live on Friday 23rd June you can hear three concert recordings from the Early Music Festival of 2021.

In this Fabulous Fringe concert, the ensemble plays Scottish music from 18th-century London, and music influenced by Scottish music. You will hear music by James Oswald, Francesco Barsanti, Robert Bremmer and Thomas Erskine, 6th Earl of Kellie, among others.

The ensemble El Gabinete De Musica plays a Fabulous Fringe concert with string trios from Opus six by Luigi Boccherini.
