Join the city of Edinburgh in a celebration of summer festivals, inspirational music and breathtaking pyrotechnics as the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert brings the Edinburgh International Festival to a resplendent conclusion.
Set against the magnificent backdrop of Edinburgh’s iconic Castle, the evening brings together the stirring playing of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra with a thrilling concert-long fireworks display, specially choreographed to enhance the musical experience.
This year’s centrepiece is Musorgsky’s dazzling orchestral showpiece Pictures at an Exhibition. Its vivid musical depictions of Russian paintings, conveyed in virtuoso playing and barnstorming brass fanfares, are the perfect match for an astonishing display of pyrotechnics.

Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, He made his name with expressionistic, free jazz in John Coltrane's late ensembles of the mid-'60s, and then on a series of modal/free classic albums under his own name, he’s gone on to embrace more traditional jazz forms and more graceful concerns. Here he is, with his Quartet, in a double bill with Scotland’s own mighty tenor player, Phil Bancroft, who has a new band featuring Paul Harrison (piano) and young tyros, Euan Burton (bass) and John Lowrie (drums).
