On the anniversary of the first Burns supper – held on 21 July 1801, five years after poet Robert Burns’ death – the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland shares a special filmed performance that celebrates the work of Scotland’s beloved Bard and Beethoven.
Beethoven, Burns and the Folksong, captured at Drumlanrig Castle in Dumfries and Galloway, features the talents of internationally acclaimed opera star Karen Cargill and students of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
A blend of music and storytelling, it’s narrated by scholar Dr William Zachs, Honorary Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.
The filmed performance also celebrates an inspiring new partnership between the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the Buccleuch Living Heritage Trust, an organisation with education at its heart, which ensures its properties of historical significance, including Drumlanrig Castle, are cared for and conserved for future generations.
