Duo Zomari, Bridget Rennie-Salonen (flute) and guitarist James Grace, are joined by and Catherine Stephenson (flute) in a programme of music ranging from JS Bach to music with a strong Latin-American flavour.

Trio Frontier play Beethoven and Brahms
Sunday 21 May 12:15 pm
Trio Frontier – Junnan Sun (clarinet) and Aristide du Plessis (cello) with pianist Christopher Duigan – play Beethoven’s youthful Trio in B-flat Op. 11, contrasted with the Brahms Trio Op. 114, one of the composers most touching and beautiful ‘twilight’ works.

Saturday 20 May 6:30 for 7:00 pm
Pianist Christopher Duigan turns his hand to a beautiful selection of light classics that evokes a bygone world of nostalgia, often associated with salon music and evenings at the family piano. Included are Brahms’s ‘Waltz in A-flat’, Dvorak’s ‘Humoresque’, Rubenstein’s ‘Melody in F’ and ‘The Maiden’s Prayer’.
