Public Concerts

The Rose Street Quartet and Rose Street Ensemble frequently perform to audiences in Edinburgh and across Scotland to high acclaim. Our wide repertoire covers chamber music, string orchestra repertoire, and full orchestral works.

For information on booking procedures and other details, please see our ‘Contact & Hire’ page.

Recitals

Our annual appearances at Strathmiglo Hall in Fife and the Dower House in Edinburgh consistently sell out, our programmes of songbook classics, jazz and classical favourites proving endlessly popular. We also perform music from the quartet canon (Haydn, Borodin, Shostakovich etc.), and augment to perform larger chamber works, most recently Schubert’s Trout, Brahms first Sextet, and Shostakovich and Elgar Piano Quintets.

Just for the Record

Members of the Rose Street Quartet work frequently in a session/studio environment. Pete recently established Pumpkinfield, a recording studio at his home near Perth, allowing us to arrange parts and conduct recording sessions remotely and return tracks to you for mixing.

Other Musical Services

With their varied background in music and the arts, Liz and Pete also provide a number of independent services – please get in touch with us to discuss.

Orchestral/concert management:

Liz has a vast experience in concert management, her experience coming from work with the Edinburgh International Festival and the Georgian Concert Society along with myriad other groups, not least our very own Rose Street Ensemble, whose fascinating programmes have been causing a stir in the Edinburgh music scene over recent years.

Pete is a professional arranger, orchestrator and music setter – his arrangements make the RSQ repertoire the unique and varied array that it is. He has recently completed work for Utah's Ballet West, Germany's Kammerphilharmonie Graubunden and Scottish Ballet and worked with composers such as Robert Moran, Peter Salem and Jonathan Mills, director of the Edinburgh International Festival.

Recording services:

Pete is head engineer at Pumpkinfield recording studio at his home near Perth, and is frequently to be found producing recordings for a wide variety of artists, for whom he also arranges parts and brings in session players.
