Inverurie Music, your local charitable music society since 1999, presents its last concert of the current season on Saturday April 21st at the Acorn Centre Inverurie.
String quartets may not be a familiar phenomenon in the town so this is a good opportunity to hear one close and personal in excellent acoustic surroundings and at a fraction of the price you would pay at, say, the Wigmore Hall!
The Sinopia Quartet is based in Scotland and comprises four leading young professional string players with impressive pedigrees. Collectively their experience includes performing with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Scottish Opera, The Milan Symphony Orchestra and the Scottish Ensemble. They have also
featured at the Edinburgh, St Magnus and Mendelssohn on Mull festivals. They will be playing some ravishing music including
- Haydn’s Quartet in C, Op 76 No 3 (“Emperor”—the one with the German national anthem variations in the second
- Schubert’s Quartettsatz, Bridge’s Three Idylls and Dvorak’s Quartet in F, Op 96 (“American”).
These are all tuneful accessible pieces to delight even the occasional concertgoer. The Schubert piece is a single sonata form movement marked Allegro assai and was to have been the first movement of a quartet which remained unfinished. It is wonderfully lively and leaves you wanting more, which is how you may feel about the whole evening.
This is an end of season treat at £12 (£9.00 concessions) and only £1.00 children and students. The concert starts at 8pm and tickets can be had on the door or from Rose Lane Music and Arts 01467 624629.
