Scottish composer Julian Wagstaff presented a new "highlights" show on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015. The concerts featured musicians and singers from Scotland's leading ensembles and performing companies, including the Edinburgh Quartet, Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Scottish Opera. Looking back on over a decade of work in the theatre and concert hall, Song to Me provides an introduction to the music of this prolific and versatile composer.
The show features a mixture of instrumental and vocal numbers, including highlights from the musical John Paul Jones, the chamber operas The Turing Test and Breathe Freely, the piano trio A Persistent Illusion, as well as rare gems such as the Saxophone/Clarinet Sonata.
Many of the works which feature in the show can be heard for free on Julian's SoundCloud and YouTube pages, or purchased on Amazon or SheetMusicPlus. Just click the links below. If you require any further information, or to request a press pack, please get in touch via the contact page.
