On Wednesday 4th April, Simon Chadwick will play a lunchtime concert of Irish and Scottish harp music. Using the big Irish harp, he will show off some of his recent researches into traditional 18th and 19th century traditional harp style.
The concert begins at 1.15pm and admission is free.
On Tuesday 10th April, we are very pleased to welcome Ensemble Hesperi to the Wighton Centre for a concert of harpsichord and recorder music.
Mary-Jannet Leith plays recorders, and Thomas Allery will play the Wighton Harpsichord, for a half-hour programme of Scottish baroque music. The programme, titled “The Pheasant’s Eye”, will feature some of James Oswald’s “Airs for the Seasons” and William McGibbon’s “Collection of Scots Tunes” amongst other delights.
Ensemble Hesperi is a young duo based in London. Mary-Jannet and Thomas have a particular interest in unpublished and previously undiscovered Scottish Baroque repertoire, and in exploring the fascinating links between Scotland, London, and the continent through Baroque music during the eighteenth century.
