  • In the frame to score some pop stardom by December

    6 Jan 2006 - Andrew Eaton - Scotsman [ feature ]

    THE way pop music is written about at this time of year, you could be forgiven for thinking that all bands begin their musical careers in January, and that if they don't make their mark within 12 months then they are disposed of, Logan's Run-style, and replaced by a younger, skinnier model.

  • Through time and space

    4 Jan 2006 - MICHAEL TUMELTY - Herald [ feature ]

    When Glasgow's City Hall throws open its doors next week, it will be immediately apparent that the 14m development programme which has been taking place in the hall is not so much a refurbishment, nor even a restoration, but more a transformation of the 1847 Candleriggs building.

  • RSNO, Messiah, Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow

    3 Jan 2006 - MICHAEL TUMELTY - Herald [ review ]

    Nicholas McGegan is a one-off.

  • Texas / K T Tunstall / El Presidente, Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh

    3 Jan 2006 - David Pollock - Independent [ review ]

    It speaks volumes for the strength of Scottish music in the past year that the organisers of Edinburgh's by now firmly established Hogmanay Street Party were able to fill the bill across two stages almost entirely with big-name homegrown acts, most of whom either made their debut or consolidated their position within the UK music scene substantially in 2005.

  • Idlewild, Barrowlands, Glasgow

    30 Dec 2005 - David Pollock - Independent [ review ]

    For a one-off seasonal special on Idlewild's home territory, this gig began under a pall.

  • Gordon Duncan

    22 Dec 2005 - ROB ADAMS - Herald [ obituary ]

    Genius is a much overused term these days, but it's not overstating the case to say that, in his fearlessly innovative approach to playing the bagpipes and in his ability to compose memorable music, Gordon Duncan was a genius.

  • Proclaimers to star in cartoon

    21 Dec 2005 - RHIANNON EDWARD - Scotsman [ feature ]

    CULT Scots rockers The Proclaimers have been signed up to star as cartoon characters in a hit United States animation.

  • Ludus Baroque & The Dunedin Consort

    21 Dec 2005 - SUSAN NICKALLS - Scotsman [ review ]

    RADIO 3's wall-to-wall festival of Bach, Bach Christmas, has turned the spotlight on the finest and most prolific composer of all time, but there is nothing to beat hearing Bach's music live.

  • Scottish Ensemble/NYOS

    21 Dec 2005 - Rowena Smith - Guardian [ review ]

    Having taken over as artistic director of the Scottish Ensemble in September, Jonathan Morton is still developing his personality with the group.

  • Christmas Oratorio, Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh

    20 Dec 2005 - CONRAD WILSON - Herald [ review ]

    The programme note was anonymous, the charming cover picture was unsigned, but their combined message on Sunday made a strong case for presenting Bach's Christmas Oratorio as an entity rather than a sequence of six cantatas to be sung between Christmas and Epiphany.
