This musical suite 'Chasing Sakura' for string quintet, saxophone and flute was composed during lockdown by talented musician and composer Seonaid Aitken.

While recovering from a serious injury, Seonaid drew inspiration from her time living in Tokyo.

The suite follows the lifespan of the cherry blossom and explores the themes of a fleeting but beautiful life, lived to the fullest.

The album was commissioned in 2021 for the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, recorded at the beautiful Stockbridge Church and presents music fusing folk, jazz and classical.

Seonaid Aitken Ensemble: Seonaid Aitken (violin, vocals), Katrina Lee (violin), Patsy Reid (viola), Alice Allen (cello), Emma Smith (bass), Helena Kay (tenor sax. flute).

"This is healing music, life-affirming, positive, engaging, melodic – a real thrill!" – ABERDEEN JAZZ FESTIVAL
