Turning the Elements performs spirited and lyrical music with “stunningly fluent performances” (The Herald) for voice and clarinet, taking music both new and traditional, and turning the elements of each piece to fit the forces of the duo, putting a unique slant on their performance.
Turning the Elements has appeared at festivals around the country: StAnza Poetry Festival (St Andrews), Fringe by the Sea (North Berwick), Sound Festival (Aberdeenshire), Book Week Scotland (Jedburgh), and taken our programmes to the Isle of Arran, Campbeltown, Dundee and Aden Park in Mintlaw (with assistance from the Hope Scott Trust).
