The Virgin Money Fireworks Concert brings Edinburgh's festrival season to a close.

Music review: Virgin Money Fireworks Concert, Ross Theatre, Princes Street Gardens

In a format initiated last year, Monday night’s Fireworks Concert began with music but no fireworks. Paying tribute to Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary, a performance of his Concert Suite No 1 - a set of love songs from West Side Story - allowed the audience to listen to the music without distraction. With their voices blending well, and displaying remarkable control and appropriate tenderness, tenor Nicky Spence and soprano Lucy Crowe both ably rose to the challenge of amplified outdoor performance on a less than warm summer evening.
