Why is E minor sad? Why is uplifting music, uplifting? How come music even ‘works’? Two of Scotland’s most revered musicians explore emotional responses to music with novelist David Mitchell. Sally Beamish is a celebrated composer whose work draws on traditional Scottish music as well as jazz, while Evelyn Glennie is the first person in history to sustain a full-time career as a solo classical percussionist. Join them in this event which combines discussion and performance.
