Acclaimed Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson is going to perform Milngavie Music Club’s concert on Friday, March 10, in Cairns Church.
Alasdair’s last visit two years ago coincided with a freak snow storm in Milngavie that made local roads impassable for a few hours, and the organisers were close to cancelling the event.
Music Club President Hugh Macdonald, said: “About 70 intrepid music lovers somehow managed to get to Cairns Church on foot, and enjoyed a fantastic evening of brilliant piano playing. We promised Alasdair we would bring him back, hopefully to a full house, and that’s what we expect when he plays for us again this month - unless we’re hit by another blizzard!”
Perth-born Alasdair Beatson is recognised as one of Scotland’s most outstanding musicians, with a growing international following.
His programme offers a tantalising mix of well-known and much loved music such as Schumann’s ‘Children’s Scenes’, the evocative ‘Images’ by Debussy, and Beethoven’s ‘Bagatelles’.
Tickets (£12; students £5, school pupils free) from The Iron Chef, 5 Mugdock Road, Milngavie and at the door. Telephone enquiries: 0141 942 3102.
