Cathedral Lunchtime Concerts – Free (St Mary’s Cathedral)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2019

Unsettled by the sticky Edinburgh weather? Collect your thoughts in the cool of St Mary’s Cathedral with a month of free concerts to enjoy. Today was the turn of The Meteyard Piano Trio from Leamington Spa, with a relaxing programme of early Debussy, Frank Bridge in playful mood and a brace of Tangos. The tone of the piano, violin and cello together was pretty and well balanced – nicely suited to the carefully chosen repertoire, while the players had that good humoured familiarity that puts a chamber music audience at ease. Only the phrasing could have been bolder, accentuating the stylistic features that made each piece different from the rest, but it was nevertheless an enjoyable hour of good music. 

St Mary’s Cathedral, until 31 Aug.
