Music of Britain – a week of the best of british

Beethoven in the Borders is over, proving a truly remarkable week for audience and artists alike.

Music Critic Michael White wrote of the six May days of Beethoven: “You could fairly call it an intense experience. But the concerts were packed out, and the performances were stunning”.

To get a feel for it (or a happy reminder) enjoy the 8-minute video as often as you like!
