Milngavie Music Club tunes up for new season


MILNGAVIE Music Club’s exciting 2011/2012 season at Cairns Church gets underway on Friday, October 14.

The outstanding Fidelio Trio - three superb young musicians playing violin, cello and piano - has already made a name for itself among British music lovers. The three gave their debut recital in London’s famous Wigmore Hall in 2009.

Since then they have become known for their incredibly varied repertoire, ranging from the classical to the 21st century, performed to widespread acclaim from audiences around the world.

They have given concerts throughout the UK and Ireland and have performed in major European venues and in China. Their Scottish tour follows shortly after seven days of performances and master classes in South Africa.

The Trio’s performances and its recordings have won it rave reviews, full of highly complimentary descriptions of their exceptional performances.

The players, pictured above, are passionate about the possibilities for the piano trio line-up and have commissioned many new works, including from leading Scottish composers such as Judith Weir and Sally Beamish.

Their Milngavie concert includes two great classics of the trio repertoire - by Schumann and Ravel - alongside Percy Grainger’s nostalgic Colonial Song.

A new work by Scotland’s very own Alasdair Nicolson completes the programme.

Milngavie Music Club’s concerts are drawing an increasingly large and enthusiastic number of local music lovers who appreciate the high quality of music and artists, performed in the excellent acoustic of Cairns Church in Buchanan Street.

The warm and friendly atmosphere is enhanced by candlelight, and there will be a chance to chat over a glass of wine or a cup of tea or coffee.

Individual concert tickets cost £10 for adults, £5 for students and school children get in free - they are available from the Iron Chef, 5 Mugdock Road, Milngavie and from Milngavie Bookshop, phone 0141 942 3102, and at the venue on the night.
