Today’s lunchtime recital at the Wighton Centre in Dundee Central Library was an excellent performance on recorders and harpsichord. Angus musicians Isobel Luke and Ethel Allan performed a delicious half-hour set of Scottish tunes taken from rare 18th century music books in the collection.
Highlights included a couple of James Oswald’s “Airs for the Seasons” played on the recorder, and a solo harpsichord sonata by J.C. Luther.
The sound of the Wighton Harpsichord, a beautifully decorated double-manual French style instrument built in 1983, filled the Centre and blended delightfully with Ethel’s expressive recorder-playing.
