By tradition, the Sanziene night is a magical night, when the skies open and the two worlds, the real and the magical, communicate. It is the only moment of the year when the fern's white flower is believed to bloom, only to disappear with the sunrise. As the folk tale goes, who sees this flower will have the ability to read thoughts and find hidden treasures. On the same night, the traditional belief goes, animals can speak in human tongue, and can share the world's secrets to all who listen.

Sanziene is not just the name of this holiday, but also the name of a plant (bedstraw), also used as a medicinal plant. Women make wreaths with these plants, and place them under their pillows, to dream of their future husband.

Enescu Concerts Season, May Concert
Outstanding Pianist Luiza Borac is Back in London for More Musical Treats

Thursday 26 June, 6pm, Steinway Hall - free. This event includes a pre-concert talk on Constantin Silvestri by music critic Evan Dickerson

Friday 27 June, 1pm, St Martin-in-the-Fields - free

During her London concerts Luiza Borac will be launching her latest CD - Chants nostalgique

 
Described by Jessica Duchen (Classical Piano) as 'reminding of nothing less than great Martha Argerich as she took the audience by storm', internationally acclaimed Romanian pianist Luiza Borac is back in London for a series of musical treats.

Luiza Borac's playlist includes work by Constantin Silvestri, George Enescu, Franz Schubert, Leopold Godowski and  Friedrich Kreisler.

Luiza Borac has captured international accolades for her committed performances of the music of George Enescu and Dinu Lipatti, as well as the prowess of her research and programming. On Chants nostalgiques she comes up with an ingenious track list of treasured songs transcribed for piano that includes numerous premieres. The title track is a first recording of a group of three songs composed by the legendary Romanian conductor Constantin Silvestri. There are Liszt arrangements of some of Schubert's most classic songs – including Gretchen am Spinnrade, Erlkönig and Ave Maria – Rachmaninov's take on Kreisler's famous Liebesleid and Liebesfreud, and Luiza's own transcription of Tárrega's timeless guitar solo Requerdos de la Alhambra, the first ever version recorded with piano.

The Box Office team can help if you need to change any of your information in your online and app listings and there's a handy list of box office services and ticketing FAQs online.
Postering in Edinburgh
With the launch underway, it's time to plan the final details of your marketing campaign. You can promote your Fringe show in the city by asking local shops and businesses to display your poster. Remember to get permission for every poster you put up as flyposting is illegal and can lead to fines.

There are drums on the High Street where you can put your poster up for free; these spaces are in high demand so you'll need to come back regularly.

The City of Edinburgh Council will be running an authorised postering scheme in conjunction with Out of Hand. The ordering facility will be going live Friday lunchtime, 6 June. They offer a variety of sites around the city where you can pay to have your poster displayed throughout the month. There are a number of packages for all budgets, with full details at http://www.outofhandscotland.co.uk.
