Thurs­day 7th Octo­ber 2021, 10.00am — 6.00pm
Bring In Your Instru­ment Con­sul­ta­tion Day
For all string play­ers, expert luthiers from Flo­ri­an Leon­hard will be here for a day in the work­shop area to advise and diag­nose the state of your instru­ment. Bring your vio­lin, vio­la or cel­lo for a free health-check, adjust­ment and set-up advice. Learn­er-grade and pro­fes­sion­al instru­ments wel­come. Many good instru­ments fall short of their opti­mal sound for want of fair­ly minor adjust­ment and refit­ting, oth­ers have prob­lems that may be solv­able.

No book­ing required:  instru­ment own­ers will be seen as they arrive.

Antho­ny Green — Vari­a­tions for Piano

Pianist Antho­ny Green returns to the Schott recital room in a pro­gram­me of  vari­a­tions, start­ing with Haydn’s ele­gant Vari­a­tions in F minor and con­clud­ing with the 33 Vari­a­tions on a Waltz by Dia­bel­li, op. 120 by Beethoven, one of the longest and most adven­tur­ous of his late works. Antho­ny also plays Anton Webern’s Vari­a­tions op. 27, Frank Bayford’s Vari­a­tions in a Land­scape, op. 96 and his own set of Vari­a­tions on a Note Row by Ingvo Claud­er.

Man­dolin + One — Nakyung Park (vio­la) and David Braid (composer/mandolin)

A high­ly var­ied col­lec­tion of colour­ful, wit­ty, orig­i­nal duos by com­poser David Braid, per­formed by vio­list Nakyung Park and the com­poser on man­dolin, con­cert No.3 in the series “Mandolin+1”. The unusu­al com­bi­na­tion of man­dolin and vio­la makes for a unique­ly clear and dis­tinc­tive tonal palet­te. David’s works, which include three sym­phonies and a vio­la con­cer­to, span a vast range of moods and forms.

Grad­u­ates of the Roy­al Col­lege of Music, The Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford and The Cra­cow Acad­e­my of Music, the duo hold an impres­sive set of degrees which informs their deep insight into their cho­sen instru­ments and reper­toire
