At 1.20pm on Friday 28th September at Dundee University Chaplaincy, I will be performing a duo recital with a superb violinist and friend of mine, Paul Livingston. Paul freelances with Scottish Opera and is part of a duo with guitarist Ian Watt; you can see his full biography here.
We’ll be playing Mozart’s beautiful Duo in G major (K.423) and the amazing (and slightly infamous) Handel/Halvorsen Passacaglia in G minor, and a few pieces tbc. There’s a great performance of the Passacaglia by Perlman and Zuckerman here, and you can hear David and Igor Oistrakh play the Mozart here.
In other news, I will be returning to the St Andrews and Fife Community Orchestra tomorrow to continue helping out with the string section, and I am planning 2 lunchtime concerts in February and March 2013 with Audrey Innes, playing the Hindemith viola sonata op 11 No 4. I’m also entering 2 pupils for ABRSM grade exams this term; in June, my pupil who took grade 1 achieved a merit, so I was very pleased with that. Finally, we will soon be getting a kitten – I can’t wait!
