The internationally acclaimed Kosmos Ensemble redefines classical and world music in a unique combination of violin, viola and classical accordion.   Influenced by music from all over the world, Kosmos perform their own compositions, arrangements and improvisations, inspired by Jewish, Gypsy, and Greek, Balkan, Arabic and Japanese music all with their own contemporary twist, and also references to classical composers.   This is a concert like no other.

The Kosmos Ensemble has performed all over Europe, and at the UK's most prestigious music festivals and venues.   All three musicians are classically trained, all are soloists in their own right, and each brings individual flavour to the group.

"I've heard Kosmos several times now and love not just their unique mixing of Middle Eastern, East, European and Western classical traditions but also telepathic rapport, dazzling virtuosity, serious scholarship, intellectual curiosity and impeccable musicianship.   I defy you not to be mesmerised."

Richard Morrison, chief music critic, The Times

"Revelatory... their wild synthesis of tango arrangements, Jewish folk songs, Leonard Bernstein riffs and improvised takes on Vaughan Williams was an unexpected gift:  brilliantly done with style and spunk."

Michael White, The Telegraph

Subscription income from members is vital to the welfare of the Biggar Music Club, for without it, it would be difficult to make the necessary planning decisions and contract commitments for each season which usually have to be made a whole year in advance.

At present, the membership fee of £60 provides free entry to all the concerts for the whole season, a cost of £8.50 per concert. This is amazingly good value when compared to what you would have to pay to enjoy live performances by the same artists or ensembles in Edinburgh or Glasgow (or even London's Wigmore Hall) and without the cost and inconvenience of having to get there...
