Milngavie Music Club's most historic event was undoubtedly an extraordinary weekend 'festival' of four concerts in October 1953 which featured eight of the world's greatest musicians, including tenor Peter Pears, composer and pianist Benjamin Britten and the incomparable Amadeus Quartet. Among the pieces they played were Vaughan Williams's powerful and moving settings of AE Housman poems, On Wenlock Edge, and Schumann's glorious Piano Quintet.

To celebrate our anniversary we have brought together six of today's most talented Scottish musicians to perform those two masterpieces once again, along with one of Haydn's brilliantly dramatic Op 71 quartets. A truly festive 75th Birthday programme!
