Over the past few months, Afton Strings have been planning and developing a series of exciting recitals featuring Mark Wilson, violin, Michael Beeston, viola, Ilse McFarlane, cello and Nina Kopparhed, soprano (and additional violinist in the string quartet). It's an all Schubert programme featuring a lot of all-time favourites but with a twist: the lieder, sung by Nina, will all be played with string trio accompaniment instead of piano!
This is the programme:
Schubert: String trio D471;
Schubert lieder for soprano and string trio: (Am mein Herz, Der Fluss, Gretchen am Spinnrade, Der Schmetterling and Der Hirt aus dem Felsen), and
Schubert: String Quartet "Der Tod und das Madchen" (with Nina on 2nd violin)
The first recital in the series is on October 4th, 2013 at the Moffat music Society at Old Well Theatre, Moffat: more concerts are in the pipeline and we will announce them here shortly.
Please come along, it'd be lovely to see you!
