Edinburgh International Fest  Edinburgh International Festival. 3-27 August 2018 #EdintFest

Wishing a very happy birthday to the composer Thea Musgrave, who turns 90 today 🎈 throughout her career Musgrave has created some truly memorable pieces of music, not least her aural depictions of William Turner's land and seascape paintings in her "Turbulent Landscapes". Hearing it performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Edinburgh Chorus at #EdintFest is going to be a powerful experience.
