  • Our popular Emerging Artists series (in partnership with the Usher Hall) returns with a range of Scotland's outstanding young professional talent.

    Join us for a morning concert, followed by a chance to meet the artists in the cafe afterwards.

    Turquoise Duo formed in 2015 after sharing a desire to spread and explore classical music with a special focus on Cuban, Spanish and Scottish folklore.

    Daniel Hart (piano) and Clara Lafuente (oboe) were born in Cuba and Spain respectively, and met whilst studying at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The home countries of the players bring a Mediterranean and Caribbean flavour to the repertoire, mixed with Scottish cultural influences from the country where the group has been developing.

    Recently, they have joined the Live Music Now scheme, which gives them the opportunity to perform in places where people rarely have the chance to listen to live music. Having a versatile repertoire, they hope to please every kind of audience.
